The American Heritage® Children's Thesaurus

The American Heritage® Children's Thesaurus
How do you choose the best word for a sentence?

With its innovative design, The American Heritage® Children's Thesaurus encourages students to distinguish among an array of synonyms by testing each word against an example sentence. Synonyms are grouped according to meaning and usage, helping students learn to think analytically and to be selective. This unique book will expand children's vocabularies while teaching them valuable new word skills. Features include more than 35,000 synonyms, a clear sample sentence for every sense of every entry, and more than 100 antonyms and word-group features.
