Firefly English Visual Dictionary with Definitions by Igor Jourist and Nancy Foran

The book, Firefly English Visual Dictionary with Definitions by Igor Jourist and Nancy Foran is such a fabulous book, full of illustrations throughout. It's perfect for everyone to enjoy! I love how there are so many photos that show you what the word is and it's definition. So you are getting a complete dictionary, with the bonus of beautiful illustrated photos to look at. It's something I think all dictionaries should include. Not only does the book look gorgeous inside, but the hardcover keeps it staying in great shape and protected for years to come!
I am more of a visual learner, but even with out visual illustrations this book is quite nice. However, I must confess I do love the photos inside to look at when searching for a word and getting an exact idea to what I'm searching for if I have no idea what the word might be referring too! Inside this book, you will learn so much, it's basically covers so many tops, which I listed below:

  • Arts and architecture
  • Clothing and accessories
  • Energy and industry
  • Food
  • Health and medicine
  • Housing
  • Human being
  • Leisure and entertainment
  • Nature
  • Office
  • Science
  • Society
  • Sports
  • Transportation.

Right there, that is a total of 14 subjects all in vivid colorful sections. So you won't get lost if your searching for a word that you have no idea what it might be. Just search the word under the colorful subject area and get an idea where it may be found. For a dictionary, it really is helpful and perfect for young kids who are starting out learning about certain animals, objects, foods, and so much more. This can really help and give them a visual as well as a normal dictionary definition.
Therefore, I feel this book makes learning a new word with children fun! It also is treat to have for studying, games, teaching yourself something new daily, and reference for so many other things. I am very pleased with this book, it's a top favorite for dictionaries!
