Help I Need a Definition! This Looks Like a Job For The Super Dictionary.

Here's a look at my Super Dictionary. I have had this since I was about 8 years old. 'The Super Dictionary' was published in 1978 and was a dictionary using DC comic heroes like Batman, Robin, Superman, Green Arrow, or Wonder Woman to give definitions of words in a comic book format.

As described in the book: The Super Dictionary is a serious book about words written in a fascinating manner just for children. It combines trusted learning theory and America's best known and loved comic characters. The irresistible quality of colorful art, the story form of the definitions and the special challenge to the young learner make this dictionary a book of many uses over a wide age range. Pre-schoolers, beginning readers and advancing readers alike find The Super Dictionary a joy to use. It is clearly organized and is a convenient and entertaining resource book unlike any other. Parents reading the book to children and having it read back to them know the pleasure of participating in a positive learning experience.

-A unique approach, now widely used in schools, combines trusted educational methods and America's best known and loved comic characters.

-Carefully researched and developed by a team of leaders in primary education, teachers and language specialists.

-416 full-color Super dictionary pages, dynamically designed to keep children involved from A to Z.

-A learning tool for developing a meaningful vocabulary, increasing comprehension skills and providing exciting reading practice.

-Strong, motivational superhero content gives each young reader a positive dictionary experience.

The book opens with a definition of each of the presenting DC comic characters and then follows with definitions of words from a to zoo in comic book format.

This book came in handy for me in elementary school and hope it can be useful for my own kids one day.
