The essential dictionary for any child learning English or Spanish as a second language.

With 12,000 terms in each language and 2,000 illustrations covering more than 500 topics, The Firefly Spanish/English Junior Visual Dictionary shows what other bilingual dictionaries just cannot -- words translated as labels on computer-generated color illustrations. The topics cover a broad range -- everything from an airport layout to the human circulatory system, from electricity to the parts of a shoe.

The dictionary is organized into 22 color-coded themes that include, among others, astronomy, geography, the animal and plant kingdoms, the environment, the human being, food, science, transportation and machinery, the arts, and sports.

Each key word or phrase is connected to a detailed illustration, making identification quick and accurate. The Spanish term is identified by gender, helping the reader with correct usage. Two extensive indexes, one in English and the other in Spanish, make it fast and simple to find a term in either language.

This visual reference is educational and fun to use, making it valuable in helping young readers learn Spanish or English as a second language.
