The Kingfisher First Dictionary is the ideal introductory dictionary for young children. One thousand five hundred entry words are clearly defined, and each word is used in a sample sentence to reinforce understanding of its usage. Over 1,000 colour photographs and illustrations enhance definitions. Coloured letter sidebars allow children to move quickly through the book to find the page they want.
