From the Publisher:

Kids live in the same world grownups do-they have to know what a modem or a hologram is, how to spell tsunami and Kwanzaa, and whether to write cyberspace and home page as one word or two.

Designed for children in grades 3-6, the American Heritage Children's Dictionary features expanded vocabulary, all-new art, and a fresh, appealing look. Over 800 full-color photos and original illustrations enhance the precise definitions. With 14,000 main entries and over 37,000 entry words in all, this new edition is more up-to-date and offers more definitions than any dictionary in its field. Hundreds of feature notes provide intriguing information about the history and regional use of words as well as useful tips for better spelling and vocabulary building. Also included is a special 10-page section on phonics, making this the only children's dictionary to feature phonics in a substantive way.

Imagine verb 1. To form a mental picture or idea of: Can you imagine a blue horse with a yellow man? 2. To make a guess; think: How do you imagine the story will turn out?
