Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689843224, Hardcover)Finding the right (appropriate/proper/correct) word can be so demanding (difficult/tough/hard), sometimes. But a good thesaurus can help find the word that expresses just what a writer or speaker wants to say, clearly and exactly. The Simon and Schuster Thesaurus for Children is an excellent (fine/admirable/great) beginning thesaurus for kids. Although not comprehensive, this handy resource includes over 800 main entries, with 5,000 synonyms--which should be plenty for most young writers. Children will find themselves returning to this handsome volume time after time as they build their vocabulary, avoid word repetition, improve their writing skills, and make correct word choices. Each alphabetical entry gives the part of speech, definitions, and example sentences, and provides easy-to-use cross-references. A complete index, a list of common phrases and idioms, common grammar problems, "word banks," and other features make this up-to-date thesaurus a reliable reference tool for budding writers and plain old students alike.
And since no desk should be without a thesaurus or a dictionary, the Macmillan Dictionary for Children, another Simon and Schuster reference book, makes a dandy companion to the Thesaurus for Children. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
