Product Description

The thesaurus kids grow into after the Scholastic Children''s Thesaurus. An innovative on-site index makes this thesaurus simpler and more successful to use.

The Scholastic Student Thesaurus is an innovative, easy-to-use title for students in grades 6-12 (savvy 5th graders, too!) It was created for the many kids who get frustrated when they try to use a thesaurus. If they look up a word and "it''s not there," many students will give up rather than turn to the indexes in the back of their books to redirect their searches. The Scholastic Student Thesaurus''s innovative same-page index solves this problem.

Amazon.com Review

Any young student should find this intuitive, well-designed thesaurus quite helpful, as well as useful, practical, handy, beneficial, and versatile.

If you have an aspiring wordsmith on your hands--or just a kid who''s renowned for his prolific deployment of the words nice and okay--this 204-page thesaurus offers well over 1,000 primary entries and more than 10,000 supplementary entries using a clever on-the-page index. Instead of a traditional index, the Scholastic Student Thesaurus lists supplemental entries alphabetically on every single page. For example, helpful doesn''t appear between helper and herb as a primary entry, but the index below on the same page refers young synonym-searchers to the main entry for useful. Each entry also contains part-of-speech labels, and many include usage notes and other synonym and antonym cross-references.

With its clean look, thoughtful introduction, and kid-friendly accessibility, the Scholastic Student Thesaurus makes a fine introduction to what may quickly become an indispensable, essential, fundamental writing tool. (Ages 10 and older) --Paul Hughes

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-Featuring a significantly expanded pool of entries over its 1998 edition, Scholastic Children''s Thesaurus, this volume takes a unique approach with its "on-the-page index" offering cross-references for more difficult words. Each entry features the term, part of speech, definition, and synonyms (in bold type). Though the previous edition offered more extensive information about the usage of each synonym, this edition widens students'' knowledge of word connections, made clear through the visibility of each handy spread-specific index. The easy-to-use, expanded introduction will be a valuable resource to students who take the time to read it. The colorful illustrations of the previous edition have given way to more solid information; overall, this edition has less flash and more substance than its predecessor.

This thesaurus does not have a very broad spectrum of words. It didn’t have words my fourth grader was doing for school work.
