Usborne Illustrated Thesaurus Consultant Review:
A fantastic homework helper resource, the Not-Your-Everyday Illustrated Thesaurus helps build vocabulary, offer alternative words for better story telling and writing, and can help build their spelling skills as they practice a larger variety of words in speech and writing.
I adore that the pages are laid out by topics that makes it engaging and interesting for kids to want to look through this book and helps them think of other words they can expand on in their writing that they may not have thought of.
Such as, a story about a farm animal can help promote additional characters to add to the plot while also helping to explain how different aspects of farm life works with a word guide approach.
