KIRKUS REVIEW

 An excellent reference book for first, second, and third graders, with 1800 entries, each followed by an example sentence. A fine ``How to Use Your Dictionary'' guide prefaces the volume. Each entry appears clearly in bold, blue typeface. Definitions are simple, and child-friendly; many full-color illustrations and photographs enrich the child's understanding of the words. In the case of verbs, particularly irregular ones, the past tense is given in a cogent, confusion-free way (``Ate is a form of eat. Chris eats three meals a day. Last night he ate pizza for supper.'') Altogether, a fine book for both home use and classroom. (Reference. 6-8)
