Picture Dictionaries for Children

I think one of the most useful books for children studying English as a second language is a picture dictionary. They are usually beautifully illustrated, and they tap into a child's natural curiosity. Rather than learning vocabulary chosen by a teacher or a curriculum, a child can browse the dictionary for topics and things that they are interested in, and find new English words.
Amazon has a good selection to choose from.

Picture dictionaries would make great prizes at the end of the school year. They also make great Christmas or birthday gifts for young students of English.
