Curious George gets curious about words in this illustrated dictionary designed for children from preschool through kindergarten. In an illustrated introduction to this unique dictionary, Curious George learns how to look up words before embarking on an educational adventure through a vocabulary list chosen specifically for children ages four to six. The dictionary itself presents approximately 600 words, with six words to a page. Each entry is illustrated with a full-color drawing, and more than half of the illustrations include a sample sentence that puts the word in context. At the end of the book, eight full-page features present groups of thematically related words such as colors, shapes, and numbers.
