For children 5 years old and older. This brightly illustrated dictionary is so user friendly it begs to be read. Word entries are in blue.

At the end of the book are highly visual thematic pages of special interest to this age: dinosaurs, parts of the body, parts of a bicycle, parts of a car, clothes, time, seasons, synonyms, antonyms, position words, numbers, measurement, shapes, and colors. This is the sort of book children will read because it's interesting. Image shows not the cover, but a sample page.; ISBN: 0764154346

Publisher: 2002.
New in New dust jacket Universe Publishing Later Printing; First Printing Hardcover 0.4 x 9.1 x 6.9 Inches; 62 pages; This has got to be one of the best books on character and manners there is, and it's now back in print. The author stresses that if anyone wants to make good friends and keep them, he needs to be honest, fair, strong, and wise. Leaf than goes on to define these qualities and to help the reader see why they are qualities to cultivate in one's life. This book, although it is a picture book, is suitable for all ages.
