The Oxford School Thesaurus is comprehensive and easy to use. Each entry is in alphabetical order, with its word class and a broad range of imaginative synonyms with supporting example sentences. Guidewords at the top of each page and the full alphabet with a tab on the letter of the page make it very easy to navigate; the page design is clear and straightforward. It features useful tinted panels on words that are often overused, for example put, nice, or say. There are also almost 90 topic panels which focus on vocabulary connected to the topic to widen student's choice and inspire their creative writing. A wealth of material in a very solid package, powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a large electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. It is the ideal companion to the bestselling Oxford School Dictionary. For additional free downloadable word games, puzzles, and activities, go online to the www.oxforddictionaries.comschools website.
