The Oxford First Illustrated Dictionary is beautifully illustrated by well-known picture book artist Emma Chichester Clark. Over 2000 entries give clear meanings and definitions, parts of speech, word forms, word families, synonyms and opposites to build vocabulary and first literacy skills.
Not just a dictionary, this unique book brings to life the world of fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and picture books that children love. Rhyming words, little words hiding in big words, and riddles provide plenty of opportunities for fun word play, along with amusing word jokes and child-friendly word origins.
This wealth of information and fun with words is presented in a contemporary, easy-to-use, engaging layout, creating the most accessible and affordable dictionary and gift-book combination.
Oxford Children’s Dictionaries are created using language research drawn from the Oxford Corpus to help children develop their vocabulary and understanding, with age-appropriate definitions carefully levelled for different reading stages.
