Summary

"The Australian Children's Illustrated Dictionary is specifically aimed at children of six years and up, an age when children are becoming increasingly independent readers and writers, and when a dictionary can be a valuable companion."--Introduction.

Notes

“An essential reference book for young Australian readers, writers and educators. Thousands of modern Australia-specific entries and pictures, to explain and illustrate everything from Aboriginal to zoom. Easy descriptions and examples of usage build a child’s understanding of language and help to improve their reading and writing. Additional helpful sections explain grammar, punctuation, abbreviations, word building and sentence structure. Developed as a comprehensive language resource for Australian school children.”--Back cover.

For ages 6 and up.
