Reviews - What do customers think about DK Children's Illustrated Dictionary?

Childern's Illustrated Dictionary  Nov 11, 2008
I purschased this dictionary for my 8 year old granddaughter. She was always asking how to spell a word or what does that mean. She loves it! It has really good illustrations and she can find most words that are at her age level. She took it to school and showed her teacher and she was very impressed with the book.
 
This is a serious option  Oct 31, 2008
Having just browsed through my new acquisition (a Christmas gift for my 7 year old Godchild of Chinese origin, now busy to learn English as well) and her younger sister, I find it is a serious option which can be of help - yet only to equally serious students looking for help.

While at first glance the number and choice of entries cannot be assessed in terms of exhaustiveness and adequacy for the stated age bracket of children users, the layout and the visual appearance is rather appealing. The accompanying definitions and explanations, though, require the full attention and some serious interest on the part of the users to be really helpful. Not only are they somewhat demanding in terms of content and descriptive qualities, the "fine print" in which they are presented really requires serious efforts to read AND understand the sometimes relatively complex wording and/or references that are given. Therefore the very young users may easily tire of looking things up, except maybe for pictures to give them clues.

However, for the serious students and frequent users the challenge eventually represents the advantage of mastering ever more words and terms, once they get used to it and don't loose the habit of consulting the Dictionary.
Having said that, I don't regret the investment and I hope the kids will join me in my enthusiasm.

IT'S AN AWESOME DICTIONARY  Oct 8, 2008
I RECOMMAND THIS DICTIONARY, IT IS AWESOME. I BROUGHT IT FOR MY LITTLE BROTHER WHO IS IN THE THIRD GRADE. AND SO FAR, EVERYTIME WE LOOK UP A WORD THAT HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND IT'S THERE. THE DEFINITIONS ARE SIMPLE. IT WAS A GREAT CHOICE.
 
Excellent first dictionary  Aug 25, 2008
We found this to be an excellent first dictionary. Most things that you want pictures of do have pictures, and the pictures are very appropriate and have helpful captions (usually a sentence describing the picture). The definitions manage rather well to explain the meanings of simple words in even simpler words. Also, with 5,000 words, almost all of the words in a beginning reader's reading vocabulary will be included.
 
Good for Beginner Readers  Aug 10, 2008
This is a beautifully illustrated dictionary with easy to understand definitions. I gave it 3 stars because I bought it for my 6-year-old daughter, and I find that too often this dictionary does not have the words that she needs to look up. Now I need to buy an additional dictionary to supplement this one.
