Nearly 200 new and updated entries and the addition of more than a dozen new photographs make the updated Scholastic Children's Dictionary the best choice in children's dictionaries.

The updated Scholastic Children's Dictionary features nearly 200 new entries that will keep this evergreen title current and competitive. The new words have been carefully chosen. They are words that kids are likely to encounter, and we are confident that they are words that will remain in use for years to come. New entries include air bag, browser, cell phone, DVD, Internet, server, SUV, and Web site.
The updated Scholastic Children's Dictionary still boasts the elements that made the original edition so beloved by children, parents, and teachers. Pronunciations are spelled the way they sound--not with confusing symbols and schwas. Sample sentences and cross-references help to make words even easier to understand, and full-color illustrations provide additional information.
Now including terms such as DVD, browser, rap ("noun, A type of song in which the words are spoken in a rhythmical way to a musical background"), and almost 200 other new entries, this freshly updated version of the perenially popular Scholastic Children's Dictionary continues to keep up with children's rapidly shifting day-to-day world. Easy-to-understand pronunciation guides, sample sentences, word histories, cross references, synonym boxes, illustrations, photos, and language notes all make this a dictionary any child will be sure to use regularly for schoolwork--or even peruse for fun! (Check out the detailed illustrations and definition for space shuttle.) Included also are maps of the U.S. and the world, Braille and ASL alphabets, flags of the world, facts about the 50 U.S. states, and a list of American presidents. This colorful, accessible, illustrated dictionary was designed for real kids living and learning right now. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
