Oxford First Thesaurus by Andrew Delahunty

Containing over 100 words in alphabetical order, 1000 synonyms, opposites, and word families, this work is for children as they begin to write independently. It contains a headword, synonyms, and picture book illustrations. It gives each synonym in blue to highlight it, and repeats it in a sentence to demonstrate how to use it effectively.


‘The layout is clear and each word is explained using simple language with lots of contextual examples. Bright and humorous illustrations make this an appealing as well as a valuable reference book.’ Child Education and Junior Education.
