My First Dictionary (Letterland Book)

With over 300 words, definitions and pictures, this first dictionary introduces children to the alphabet and some essential first words. Each page is carefully designed with the full alphabet running down the side, simple definitions and bright illustrations to reinforce meaning, as well as example sentences showing each word in context. The book also features vocabulary pages for topics such as colours, shapes, numbers, days, months and seasons, an illustrated list of useful verbs and the 100 most frequently used words in the English language. With icons to show which words can be ‘sounded out’ easily and phonic stories to help with learning new spelling patterns, this is much more than a dictionary! Teacher’s tip: Focus on initial sounds and first blending skills.
