Reviews - What do customers think about The Clear and Simple Thesaurus Dictionary: Revised! Fully Updated!?
Scholastic Dictionary of Synonyma, Antonyms, and Homonyms Feb 12, 2007
This book is a valuable resource for students in upper elementary and lower middle school grades. Great for homework help and vocabulary building if used on a continual basis.
Different than expected, but still happy Jan 8, 2007
I thought this book was for a little bit younger child, but I was plesantly suprised when it arrived! It's perfect for our 8 year old all the way to the grown-ups in the family. Our 8 yr old likes it because it looks like a "real" dictionary/thesaurus, but is easy to use. He's just learning how to use a real dictionary, so this was a great buy.
A dissapointment Jan 3, 2007
This book has, unfortunately, been a disappointment for me. From reading the reviews written by others, I had high hopes for it, but it has not lived up to them in my family's particular experience. I bought this dictionary specifically for my son (age 12) to use, but literally every time he has tried to use it to look up a word he needs, it happens to be a word that has not been included. Just our dumb luck, I guess, but it seems this book is better suited to those in grades 1-4 and probably not beyond that.
5th Grade Elementary student dictionary Nov 11, 2006
Used by my son at school. He said that it is pretty good and his teacher reccomends it.
Just what I needed Apr 4, 2003
I could not expect anything more from a thesauras. This has all the words I, through my preteen years, have needed, without boggling my mind with lots of words that I never try to use. I don't feel overwhelmed, but I DO find the information I need.
