The only children’s dictionary currently featuring a thesaurus, grammar guide, punctuation guide, idioms guide, and a geography section


With over a million copies in print, SCHOLASTIC CHILDREN’S DICTIONARY is a category leader, incorporating more than 1,000 photographs and illustrations, easy-to-understand definitions, and up-to-the-minute computer, scientific and cultural terms in “an attractive, modern reference” (School Library Journal).

A dynamic, visual reference for the media age, the dictionary features kid-friendly language tips, a simplified pronunciation key, sample sentences, and detailed illustrations. Of the imagery School Library Journal has noted, “the photographs are of remarkably fine resolution, possessing an almost

3-D quality and lifelike colors.”

Plenty of maps, bright color, easily-absorbed guide words and cross-references, add to this essential family reference.
