Comments about Collins Australian School Dictionary:
Love this dictionary. We actually have 3 of them! Two are with my kids at school and one for home use. I bought 3 other brands of school dictionaries prior to this and wasn't completely satisfied with them. Unlike the other dictionaries I purchased, this one has both simple and more complex words and explanations are what a kid would easily understand. This is the kind of dictionary you need when you have a very common word to explain, but don't know how to describe the meaning to a younger or older chid. Complex words are also explained so well in this book, unlike universal dictionary's where you often have to look up the meaning of the words they use in their explanations! The coloured index is also excellent. It makes looking up words less of a chore and teaches them to get used to looking up words in alphabetical order. My kids are in primary school (8 and 11 years old) and I think it will also be useful for them when they go to high school.
