This book was great. There were pre, present, and past tenses of words. The big words had good definitions with them. Every word had a picture. They kept some of the same characters through out the story like Aaron the alligator and Aunt Ada. Great for teaching English class. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0394810090, Hardcover)

A decades-old dictionary that you can still use today (and know that children will love it) is an amazing testament to the genius of the Seuss stable. The roughly 12-per-page colored drawings are dated, of course--the humans far more than the animals, funnily enough--but they've aged in a way that adds to their charm rather than detracting from it. (Phonograph may take some explaining; ditto typewriter, which we recently heard described as "like a computer, only with paper instead of a screen.") The 1,350 words are well balanced between the obvious stuff--common nouns and verbs--and more abstract language, from about to yet. Each word is accompanied by a drawing and an illustrative sentence. Along the way, naturally, we meet a wacky menagerie of humans and animals: "Aaron the alligator making more machines," "Aunt Ada standing on her head," etc. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

The editors of Beginner Books have made this book of words as fun-filled as possible. It's full of ridiculous alligators, foolish bears, and giraffes' uncles all racing around getting involved in nonsensical adventures. The animals' zany antics focus children's attention and help them remember 1,350 basic elementary vocabulary words.… (more)
