We have reprinted this dictionary because this dictionary is a less advanced dictionary than the Webster's New World™ Student Dictionary that replaced it and some of our customers have told us that this dictionary is superior to the current edition of the Webster's New World™ Student Dictionary.
We were fortunate that the printer found the photo images that were used to make the printing plates. Because of changes in print technology the photos had to be digitized before the plates were made. As a result the print quality is even better than the original and the photos in the dictionary have more contrast which makes the images easier to duplicate.
A good investment. A course administrator recently told us that he has had the e Learn aid Young Readers Dictionary for eight months now is is very pleased with the way they have lasted. He has classes day and night and his dictionaries are constantly being used. So much so that the binding falls apart on some dictionaries after only three months on others the pages get all fold in. He has not seen this at all for our dictionaries. Further, even though the students have a choice of dictionaries the e Learn Aid Young Readers are all in use and he has ordered from us three times in the past year!
