Reviews - What do customers think about The Kingfisher First Dictionary (Kingfisher First Reference)?

They use it in my son's Kindergarten class...  Mar 24, 2007
They use it in my son's Kindergarten class, which is why I ordered it for his birthday. The pictures are crisp clear colorful and interesting. He loves sitting and looking at it and looking up words (and I never would have thought he'd be such a book worm!). There are a few words that he wanted to look up that were not in there...cheetah, for intance. But it is a good starter dictionary and since we have 3 children, I am sure it will get passed down even if he moves on to something more complex quicker than we thought.
Appealing and informative first dictionary.  Apr 22, 2000
This first dictionary has an attractive and easy-to-read format, loaded with full color photographs and drawings. Each word is in large bold type, followed by its definition and sometimes an example of its usage. Illustrations help early readers locate the word they are looking for. The book also includes some large full page charts, such as the human body with outer parts labeled (limbs and facial features- not internal organs) and a page of dinosaurs. But one will not find many specific types of dinosaurs or whales here, just the basics. Eventually older kids will need to move on to a dictionary with more specific words.
