With more than 74,000 age-appropriate words and 32,000 example sentences showing words used in context, the dictionary brims with vocabulary reflecting recent cultural and scientific developments. Definitions are phrased in a way young people can readily understand. A full-color page design with vivid graphics provides a powerful platform for developing a more sophisticated vocabulary.
