A fully illustrated alphabetical first dictionary for 4–5-year-olds.
The Oxford Very First Dictionary introduces children aged 4+ to the features of a dictionary in an appealing way.
The dictionary has over 300 familiar words, each with a simple definition and an illustration which reinforces the definition.
Each page is clearly laid out so it is easy to pick out the main features – the alphabet down the side of the page, the letter of the page you are on in red, and an illustrated opening letter – A shows a juicy apple, B shows some buzzing bees.
There is also a fully illustrated section at the end with vocabulary on topics related to first learning, e.g. colours, numbers, shapes, days and months, as well as a list of common words and a simple introduction to grammar with a list of verbs or ‘doing words’.
