The Scholastic Pocket Thesaurus is an innovative, easy-to-use title created for the many kids who get frustrated when they try to use a thesaurus. If they look up a word and "it's not there," many students will give up rather than turn to the indexes in the back of their books to redirect their searches. The Scholastic Pocket Thesaurus's innovative same-page index solves this problem.


  • From School Library Journal
    " . . . This volume takes a unique approach with its "on-the-page index" offering cross-references for more difficult words. Each entry features the term, part of speech, definition, and synonyms (in bold type). Though the previous edition offered more extensive information about the usage of each synonym, this edition widens students' knowledge of word connections, made clear through the visibility of each handy spread-specific index. The easy-to-use, expanded introduction will be a valuable resource to students who take the time to read it."
