Gr 1-5-This excellent, easy-to-use resource is arranged alphabetically. Each page has one headword set off in red, followed by synonyms, definitions, related words, and examples of usage. Oftentimes, antonyms are included as well. The book is designed to introduce students to the thesaurus and how to use it for building vocabulary and adding variety and liveliness to their writing. The relevant, color cartoon illustrations are eye-catching. For example, the headword "bend" is illustrated with cars on a road bending in various ways. The definition states, "If you bend something, you change its shape so it is not straight any more." Related words are "curves," "turns," "twists," "winds," and "zigzag."
