The Oxford First Thesaurus is a highly innovative reference book that will help children develop a confident writing style of their own. It is unique in that it is the only illustrated thesaurus at this level. Wonderful picture book illustrations bring this reference title to life and helps children to develop an interest in words and to grow their vocabulary for writing at school and at home. It includes over 100 headwords listed alphabetically with a page or spread of their own; and over 1000 synonyms given along with opposites, sample sentences, word families, and descriptive vocabulary. It fits the NLS requirements at Y1 and Y2 and includes over used words. It introduces the idea of a thesaurus as distinct from a dictionary, and develops alphabetical skills and helps with early grammar. It serves as a companion to the Oxford First Dictionary .
