The American Heritage Picture Dictionary Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Houghton Mifflin

The American Heritage Picture Dictionary from Houghton Mifflin is a colorful, hardcover dictionary for our youngest scholars. This newly updated edition has over 125 pages of brightly illustrated large-print words in an easy to understand format.

Simple for children to use and understand, this dictionary shows the meanings of words through pictures and elaborates on those meanings with picture "scenes" at the back of the dictionary. It also helps children learn how words function in a sentence.

This dictionary is specially geared to the very youngest age group, and it is a great resource for them. The modest, family friendly illustrations (not photos) make it eye appealing for little ones. This is a wonderful learning tool!
