    A fresh new look for the Oxford Very First Dictionary which introduces children aged 4+ to the features of a dictionary in an appealing way. The dictionary has over 300 familiar words, each with a simple definition and an illustration which reinforces the definition. Each page is clearly laid out so it is easy to pick out the main features - the alphabet down the side of the page, the letter of the page you are on in red. A lovely extra for this age level is the illustrated opening letter - A shows a juicy apple, B shows some buzzing bees. There is also a fully illustrated section at the end with vocabulary on topics related to first learning, e.g. colours, numbers, shapes, days and months, as well as a list of common words and a simple introduction to grammar with a list of verbs or 'doing words'. This is a great introduction to the world of dictionaries. For free downloadable fun word games, puzzles, and activities, go online to the www.oxforddictionaries.com/schools website.

    Collins First Atlas is a fun, vibrant and clear starter atlas for 4-7 year olds which provides an introduction to basic geographical and atlas vocabulary. This first atlas introduces the younger pupil to photographs and mapping of a local area. From this beginning the atlas gradually maps through regional, national, continental and world regions with global views of the wider world. Carefully selected map labels highlight certain countries or features which can be easily identified to illustrate the concept of mapping as it becomes more complex. All maps are supported with short informative sentences which use a basic geographical vocabulary.
