Description
This brand-new edition of the best-selling American Heritage Children's Dictionary covers all the vocabulary young readers need today. More than 2,000 new words and senses make this the most comprehensive and up-to-date children's dictionary available.  New entries cover the complete range of subjects and include such terms as aikido,  burqa, dwarf planet, greenhouse gas, hip-hop, skate park, and sustainable. Over 25,000 entries are defined in age-appropriate, contemporary language. More than 16,000 expertly crafted example sentences show words in context. Hundreds of special feature notes expand children's knowledge of language and a separate phonics and spelling guide helps to develop sound reading and writing skills. The engaging and contemporary design includes 1,500 vivid full-color photographs, illustrations, and diagrams that supplement and expand upon the definitions. The art encompasses multidimensional presentations showing fascinating subjects such as cave, geyser, houseboat, and starfish. With the thousands of new words and senses and an all-new art program, nearly 80 percent of the book is fresh material. Rich in content and graphics, this comprehensive and easy-to-use dictionary is a must for every young reader.
