Let's Learn Picture Dictionary is an ideal first word book for children beginning to learn to read in a language. It has been created by leading language educators with a carefully controlled vocabulary of the words most commonly taught in beginning language classes. The dictionary consists of 30 large, colorful scenes that illustrate more than 1,550 basic words. These funfilled scenese are designed to encourage children to spend time discovering and rediscovering each topic - focusing on the child's everyday world (the house, the family, the classroom, sports), life in the community at large (the city, the country, transportation, people in the community), and the child's world of fun and fantasy (a make-believe caste, space, the ocean, the zoo). Alongside each scence, children will find individual illustrations of the specific vocabulary in that scence. These individual illustrations are clearly defined to build vocabulary. At the back of the dictionary are a complete alphabetical index and glossary of all the individually illustrated words.
