Packed with more than 800 entries, this first book of words and their meanings has been developed to help preschoolers and young grade-schoolers develop language, spelling, and vocabulary skills. Delightfully illustrated with Disney characters, each entry is organized alphabetically to help reinforce alphabet skills. Words are accompanied by simple definitions, and easy-to-read sentences that put words into context.

Jam-packed with more than 900 entries, the big, colorful Disney Picture Dictionary is designed to help children through several stages of learning. The youngest kids look at the alphabetized words along with pictures featuring their favorite Disney characters to help grasp the meanings. Older children can delve deeper with the definitions accompanying each word and picture, as well as sentences showing usage. The "A" pages feature, for example, "alone," with this definition: "You are alone when you are by yourself." A picture of Lilo (from Lilo and Stitch) lying on a blanket with a record player is captioned: "When Lilo is alone, she likes to listen to her Elvis records." "Horse," "key," "mistake," "sleep," "yesterday," and "zoo" are similarly treated. Characters from Monsters, Inc., A Bug’s Life, Toy Story, as well as Mickey Mouse, Ariel, Bambi, and Donald Duck, romp through the book, seeming to jump out of the pages in their enthusiasm to encourage little readers-to-be. An alphabet strip runs down the outer edges of each page for reference. This is a fun first dictionary, not intended to be comprehensive so much as an introduction to the world of words. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
