We all remember in our child, and even the years after, having looked up definitions in a dictionary.

Despite the advent of the internet, the dictionary remains a reference work for knowing the definition of a word.

    Choosing the right dictionary for a child

    Do you have a child at home?

    Well know that there are dictionaries specially designed for the youngest.

    If you want your child to get the most out of it, you should choose the dictionary you buy for him carefully.

    Let's see what are the criteria to take into account when making your purchase.

    First, check the age the dictionary is for.

    This information will necessarily be mentioned on the cover of the book.

    Publishers may specify an age range or a grade level (e.g. middle school), or sometimes both, so you are clear who the dictionary is for.

    If you do not take a dictionary adapted to his age and level, your child may find it too complicated.

    He will certainly not want to use it and therefore your purchase will be of little use.

    Very often, dictionaries intended for children are illustrated.

    This makes reading much more enjoyable and meaningful for young readers.

    They will take more pleasure in consulting the definitions if drawings or photos are present.

    Finally, consider the format.

    A pocket model will be more compact and therefore easier to use or carry for a child.

    If you plan to use it more at home, you can choose a large format which will be more complete and more detailed.

    How to sell your old dictionary?
