Synopsis: With more than 4,000 entries and 36,000 synonyms, this updated edition of the award-winning American Heritage Children's Thesaurus encourages young writers to think analytically about word choice. Synonyms are divided into two groups: "best choices" and "other choices," so children can find the right word for every context. Every sense of each entry word is illustrated by an example sentence showing typical usage. Helpful feature notes and more than 150 full-color photographs make this the most appealing children's thesaurus on the market.

Review: Is this a conventional thesaurus? Regular and standard? Or would you say it was more extraordinary--exceptional and outstanding? Paul Hellweg's The American Heritage Children's Thesaurus is both, actually. It provides everything you'd expect from a children's thesaurus--4,000 words with over 36,000 synonyms--but it is unusually clear and colorfully presented. Each deep purple entry includes its part of speech in italics, and lists the suggested synonyms in bold, best matches first. Each word is used in a sentence to clarify its meaning. Color photographs are sprinkled throughout for visual relief, and "Antonyms" and "Word Groups" boxes help expand vocabulary choices. Word groups are reserved for words like "international," which doesn't have a real synonym but a cluster of closely related words such as "communal, global, national, planetary, universal," and "worldwide." If your favorite students tend to overuse words like "nice," "funny," and "weird" (and who doesn't, really?), this handy reference will have them turning a phrase with finesse. (Ages 8 to 12)
