DICTIONARY Aug 23, 2007
GREAT SELLER, VERY FAST DELIVERY, BOOK WAS JUST WHAT I ORDERED. WOULD DO BUSINESS WITH AGAIN,,,THANKS
Excellent study aid for lower grades! May 23, 2007
I purchased hard cover Merriam-Webster's Elementary Dictionary for each one of my First Grade Class to give at the end of the school year as a special prize. The next day two of the boys brought their dictionaries back to school with ALL of the bird pictures in the dictionary marked to show me. Each one could also read the description of the birds pictured. This is a very complete, well illustrated dictionary for any American child aged 6-14. I can see years of use for each dictionary as the children progress to upper levels. I plan to purchase the same dictionary for my class next year. I have several Scholastic dictionaries in the classroom but they are not as well researched as Merriam-Webster.
GREAT DICTIONARY. May 15, 2007
MY DAUGHTER IS SEVEN AND WAS REALLY EXICTED TO RECEIVE THIS. I DON'T ALLOW HER TO USE THE ADULT DICTIONARY BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE WORDS IN IT. SHE WILL FIND THOSE OUT WHEN SHE GROWS UP BUT THIS IS GREAT. THE DESCRIPTION OF IT IS WONDERFUL, SHE REALLY ENJOYS IT, AND LOOKS UP WORDS FOR FUN NOT JUST FOR SCHOOL. GLAD THAT I MADE THIS PURCHASE.
Excellent Dictionary Mar 31, 2006
I have a copy of A dictionary for boys and girls, Websters Elementary Dictionary, Copyright, 1956 that I used when I was in elementary school. My kids are using the same dictionary and really enjoy it. Books do not have to be currently up to date to have such a great value as this one. Great book.
