An illustrated thesaurus contains more than one hundred words accompanied by their synonyms, antonyms, and sample sentences. 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. It will help you find new words for your writing at school and at home. The first thing they learn is that a thesaurus isn't the same as a dictionary. Its 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. Are you looking for another word for nice or bad? What is the best word to describe a knight? Brave or bold or fearless? When you are looking for another word to describe something, you need a thesaurus. Kids will discover that using a thesaurus is not only instructive, but fun, too! You'll find more than 1,000 synonyms, as well as opposites, word families, and sample sentences. The colorful and simple layout makes this thesaurus easy to use. It will help you acquire good language skills.
