GREAT RESOURCE Jan 20, 2010
Glad I bought this resource for the whole family to use and enjoy. I bounces from child to child, and then up to mom and dad, and then to the neighbor. It's used almost every day and is already showing some signs of being dog-eared, but the strong binding is holding up well. A great resource for every household.
At first great - but a year later = lowed opinion Jun 26, 2008
We homeschool our 2 kids (ages 8 & 11) and my 11 year old needed something on his level and this fit his style and level and will be able to keep him for a couple of years.
I'll leave that part up there so you can see my very basic original review. In the past year we find ourselves looking up more and more online vs using this dictionary. Though both kids can and do use it - a lot of the vocabulary words we seem to need are not even listed making it frustrating for both of us. We have an older dictionary which I make them use just so they know how - but instead of investing in this one - I would save money, get an older dictionary, then let them look up words on-line. I can find so many other places to spend my $15 at this point - but we still keep this one around.
Perfect for my 5th grader Mar 1, 2007
My 5th grade son has had no problems using this thesaurus. The format is very easy to understand and the words contained within are compatable with the words middle school children are learning.
