Excellent Dictionary!

My 10 year old has been using this dictionary for six months. He likes it so much that he asked to bring it to school and keep it in his desk rather than use the dictionary provided by his school. I am now purchasing a second copy for him to use at home. The definitions are clear and the illustrations are excellent. It is rare that a word he is looking for is not in this dictionary. When that happens, we turn to the Merriam-Webster's Intermediate Dictionary. I give Merriam-Webster Dictionary products as gifts to my nieces and nephews; that's how impressed I am with their products. I'm an educator and take learning very seriously. I only want the best products and this one passed my rigorous standards. You won't be disappointed. Please note I am referring to Merriam-Webster products not Webster's.

Excellent study aid for lower grades!

I purchased hard cover Merriam-Webster's Elementary Dictionary for each one of my First Grade Class to give at the end of the school year as a special prize. The next day two of the boys brought their dictionaries back to school with ALL of the bird pictures in the dictionary marked to show me. Each one could also read the description of the birds pictured. This is a very complete, well illustrated dictionary for any American child aged 6-14. I can see years of use for each dictionary as the children progress to upper levels. I plan to purchase the same dictionary for my class next year. I have several Scholastic dictionaries in the classroom but they are not as well researched as Merriam-Webster.

GREAT DICTIONARY.

MY DAUGHTER IS SEVEN AND WAS REALLY EXICTED TO RECEIVE THIS. I DON'T ALLOW HER TO USE THE ADULT DICTIONARY BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE WORDS IN IT. SHE WILL FIND THOSE OUT WHEN SHE GROWS UP BUT THIS IS GREAT. THE DESCRIPTION OF IT IS WONDERFUL, SHE REALLY ENJOYS IT, AND LOOKS UP WORDS FOR FUN NOT JUST FOR SCHOOL. GLAD THAT I MADE THIS PURCHASE.

I like my dictionary a lot

I like it. I use it everyday for homeschool. I like the pictures. (...) 4 years old

Best elementary dic for foreign language speaking kids

The dictionary has been intended for a nine years old girl who didn't has any English lessons till then. The book is easy to use, the explanations are simple and navigating through is arousing further interest. We think it is not only a dictionary but even more some first encyclopedia which feed the curiosity of the young ones as soon as they can read! brgds
