Canadian children's dictionary (xp)

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a children's dictionary for use throughout elementary and beginning of middle school. I really like the looks of the DK Merriam-Webster Children's Dictionary (http://www.amazon.com/Merriam-Webster-Childrens-Dictionary-DK-Publishing/dp/0756637589/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top) except I wished that they made a Canadian version.


The closest thing I can find is DK Children's Illustrated Dictionary, Canadian Edition (http://www.amazon.ca/Childrens-Illustrated-Dictionary-Canadian-4e/dp/1553632273/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1401573253&sr=8-1&keywords=Canadian+Children+dictionary). Unfortunately, it didn't even have the first word we tried to look up (archaeology). It is too basic for our needs. (As a comparison, the MW dictionary above is 960 pages and this one is 256).


What do other Canadians use for an elementary-level dictionary?

Thank you. Those searches gave me new books, but they also led to me checking out amazon.com.uk. It was much easier to search there for what I wanted. I think we will be going with the Oxford Illustrated Children's Dictionary http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/0199119937/ref=gno_cart_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB


And just because I couldn't resist, the matching thesaurus:
