Grade 2–5—Including a reference guide to letter pronunciation at the bottom of each spread, this work also includes an alphabet locator on the side of each page. Clear guide words and extensive use of cross-references enable users to locate definitions and synonyms. Clearly captioned color photographs and some drawings, including the relevant definition as needed, bring the entries to life. Homographs are identified, and word histories are included throughout, adding to the interest level of the work. Each definition includes examples, and guidance such as variant spellings and usage labels ("often cap") are provided where necessary. A closing reference section includes a spread for each continent, color images of the flags of the world and of U.S. states, significant data on each state, a chronological listing of U.S. presidents and vice presidents, and common abbreviations. The book concludes with a listing of signs and symbols and a comprehensive index to all pictures in the work. The clear, easy-to-read print and bright pictures of varied type and source make this work easy for second or third graders to use, while fourth and fifth graders will appreciate the depth of the entries.—Sara Rofofsky Marcus, Yeshiva Har Torah, Little Neck, NY

This is a collaborative effort, with design and images from DK and text based on Merriam-Webster’s Elementary Dictionary. Some definitions include variant spellings, usage notes and labels, example phrases, and synonym and word-history paragraphs. Parts-of-speech labels are abbreviated. In familiar DK fashion, sidebars illustrate groups of terms, such as examples of dinosaurs and different kinds of cheese. The reference section has a couple of pages on each continent plus information on flags; U.S. states, presidents, and vice presidents; standard abbreviations (most of the comparable dictionaries include these in their A-Z sequence), and pronunciations for place-names. Grades 3-6. --Mary Ellen Quinn
