Roald Dahl Dictionary

Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary
Text by Roald Dahl
Illustrated by Quentin Blake
Compiled by Susan Rennie
Oxford University Press, 2016.

Who doesn't love Roald Dahl?? This is a great reference for Dahl fans as well as a sweet postmortem tribute to an amazing author. Many of the words included are normal dictionary words, while plenty are the kinds of words that can only be attributed to Dahl's imagination such as "Jabble." However, ALL the words are defined by Dahl with examples to show just how one would use "sniff" if you were a giant. If you're child is starting to venture into the world of BFGs and magical chocolate factories, this should be on your reading list.

If you aren't sure how to teach your child to use a dictionary, consider checking out and reading "How Do I Use a Dictionary."
