Barron's First ThesaurusBook - 2005
Barron's First Thesaurus, written and illustrated for primary school children, will help them build their vocabularies as they are introduced to the idea of a thesaurus. The first thing they learn is that a thesaurus isn't the same as a dictionary. It's purpose is to present many synonyms for each of its main entries--or headwords--while a dictionary focuses more attention on word definitions. This good-looking volume presents more than 100 headwords--one headword to a page--then provides a short definition that includes synonyms an example sentence, a separate list of synonyms, and where appropriate, an antonym. Young readers will find a total of more than 1,000 synonyms that will strengthen their vocabularies and improve their writing styles for classroom assignments. Each alphabetically listed headword appears in an attractive layout with cartoon-style color illustrations to help clarify word meanings. Kids will discover that using a thesaurus is not only instructive, but fun, too!
