9780192746047: Oxford First Illustrated Dictionary

The Oxford First Illustrated Dictionary, beautifully illustrated by well-known picture book artist Emma Chichester Clark, is the perfect first building block for 5-7 year-olds to engage with words and language. Over 2000 entries give clear meanings and definitions, parts of speech, word forms, word families, synonyms and opposites to build vocabulary and first literacy skills. Not just a dictionary, this unique book brings to life the world of fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and picture books that children love. Winnie the Pooh and Georgie Porgie appear alongside Aladdin and Cinderella in the innovative example sentences. Rhyming words, little words hiding in big words, and riddles provide plenty of opportunities for fun word play, along with amusing word jokes and child-friendly word origins. The entry for 'crocodile' tells the child that the word comes from a Greek word meaning 'lizard' and ends with the joke: 'What's a crocodile's favourite game? Snap.'This wealth of information and fun with words is presented in a contemporary, easy-to-use, engaging layout, creating the most accessible and affordable dictionary and gift-book combination, the perfect buy for Christmas and holidays as well as for everyday use.

About the Author:

Andrew Delahunty is a freelance lexicographer and dictionary editor.

Review:

`The text is clear and imaginatively written, and the full colour illustration is outstanding... A dictionary that invites talk and storytelling is very special.
'
Wendy Cooling, The Bookseller

`an excellent book for young readers...Full marks!

'
Judith Nicholls, Carousel

`a magical journey through the world of words... The result is a fresh and inspiring book which is a pleasure to read in itself, evidently compiled by grown ups who like having fun with words.

'
Yorkshire Post

`This dictionary takes children on a magical journey while at the same time developing dictionary skills.'
TBK Book Guide

`A charming little dictionary, beautifully illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark... This colourful, playful first dictionary will delight children from 5+.

'
The Teacher

`Reinventing the dictionary might sound impossible, but that's just what Oxford, the market-leader in dictionaries, has just done. The approach in their all-new first dictionary for infants and lower juniors blends the traditional with the modern. ...what this dictionary has in spades is a
simplicity and directness that will appeal to youngster, and be welcomed by parents and educators.
...Well designed and easy to use, this is a dictionary with a long life ahead of it - not filed away gathering dust on a shelf; but on desks and work-tables, where it belongs.

'
Manchester Evening News

`You'll get no 'oohs' and 'aahs' of delight from recipients, but in weeks, months, and years to follow, this Illustrated Dictionary will give pleasure and be useful. The illustrations alone are stunning, as well as being effectively used to highlight some of the entries, each of which is made
intelligible by being included in a sample sentence. Looking up words becomes a genuine pleasure.

'
Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian Review

`What a wonderful idea! An empowering dictionary that's fun to read and great fun to look at. ... The humour and snippets of word-based information will appeal to a wide audience. Unique - and very welcome.'

'
Carousel

`Emma Chichester-Clark's illustrations, with their humour, imagination and child's eye view of the world, make this one for every nursery school and young family in the country.
'
The Times

`Parents and children will love dipping into this fun-filled dictionary. Various factors combine to make it a winner ... it is beautifully illustrated by one of the foremost children's artists'

'
The Herald (Glasgow)
