From Kirkus Reviews:

Using the format and style of an ``adult'' dictionary, The American Heritage Children's Dictionary is one that respects the intellects of its users. Each of the 37,000 entries is well defined, grammatically categorized and phonetically rendered. Additions such as a thesaurus, word histories, and an expanded ``How to Use Your Dictionary'' guide make it an extremely practical and accessible volume. A small quibble is with the illustrations: While the color photographs are fine, the drawings are drab and beside the point; the book would have looked better without them. Still, they do not seriously detract from the overall excellence of this volume, which has a broad application for home use and is likely to become a classic in school libraries.
