The new edition of the SCHOLASTIC RHYMING DICTIONARY has been completely redesigned to become a kid-friendly resource for finding that perfect rhyme, whether for poetry, prose, song writing, etc. Organized by vowel sounds and final syllables, this illustrated rhyming dictionary uses its own easy-to-use, accurate pronunciation system. The student writer looks up the ending sound of a word, which is listed alphabetically, and finds a list of matching rhymes ranging from the everyday to the extraordinary to modern slang. The list includes appropriate words with the same ending sound, regardless of the spelling. An introduction includes the basics of listening for rhyme, with emphasis on sounds, stressed syllables, and different spellings of same sounds.
