Synopses & Reviews
The Scholastic Pocket Dictionary is perfect for 9- to 12-year-olds who have advanced beyond the Scholastic Children's Dictionary but aren't quite ready for an adult dictionary.
The Scholastic Pocket Dictionary was created from the database used for the best-selling Scholastic Children's Dictionary. Its important features include:
Design. The three-color design was created to appeal to middle graders. The generously spaced two-column format makes it easy for students to locate the words they need.
Pronunciation key. An easy-to-use phonetic pronunciation system is used so kids don't have to decipher confusing symbols. We also provide pronunciations for all words, unlike our competitors.
