Delightful illustrations and clear definitions combine to make this the ideal first dictionary for young children. Words are shown in context to help children understand how they are used, and colorful alphabet strips along the edges of the pages aid navigation. There's also user-friendly information on how to use a dictionary, simple explanations of word classes, and plenty of tips on grammar and spelling.
Felicity has worked for Usborne for over 30 years and has written and edited hundreds of titles, from books on tractors to genetics, from Shakespeare to mental health, and plenty of sparkly unicorns. Felicity is an expert in making tricky topics friendly and accessible to young children and recently has been writing books that celebrate feelings, friendship, empathy, families, and diversity. When she's not writing or researching very specific details on dinosaurs, Felicity can be found tramping through fields and forests foraging for food or just curled up with a bag of Twiglets, a couple of cats and a crossword.
