Summary

Summary

The thesaurus kids grow into after the Scholastic Children's Thesaurus. An innovative on-site index makes this thesaurus simpler and more successful to use.

The Scholastic Student Thesaurus is an innovative, easy-to-use title for students in grades 6-12 (savvy 5th graders, too!) It was created for the many kids who get frustrated when they try to use a thesaurus. If they look up a word and "it's not there," many students will give up rather than turn to the indexes in the back of their books to redirect their searches. The Scholastic Student Thesaurus's innovative same-page index solves this problem.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Featuring a significantly expanded pool of entries over its 1998 edition, Scholastic Children's Thesaurus, this volume takes a unique approach with its "on-the-page index" offering cross-references for more difficult words. Each entry features the term, part of speech, definition, and synonyms (in bold type). Though the previous edition offered more extensive information about the usage of each synonym, this edition widens students' knowledge of word connections, made clear through the visibility of each handy spread-specific index. The easy-to-use, expanded introduction will be a valuable resource to students who take the time to read it. The colorful illustrations of the previous edition have given way to more solid information; overall, this edition has less flash and more substance than its predecessor.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia (c) Copyright 2010.
