    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! (Ages 6–10)

    From the reviews:
    “The book is designed to introduce students to the thesaurus and how to use it for building vocabulary and adding variety and liveliness to their writing. The relevant, color cartoon illustrations are eye-catching.”
