"TJ’s Picture Dictionary is a bright, easy-to-use picture dictionary with lots of audio content to keep pre-readers engaged and exploring first words and accessible, context-rich definitions. This app makes an interesting bridge between short first words books and the longer, traditional print children’s dictionaries."

Picture Dictionary is a versatile app for preschoolers. It is designed to enhance the following skills:
All content is specifically designed around standard preschool curriculum. It is effective for native English speakers, English Language Learners and learners with special needs. In addition to the basic package, it can be expanded with in app purchases with extra theme packs as your child progresses.
How to play
All the words currently in the user’s dictionary are accessible through “All Words A-Z” or through their theme pack, i.e. “Swimming Pool” will show up when a user clicks “Water” or when they click “All Words A-Z.” This makes it easier for a parent or teacher to either focus on a specific theme or access the entire dictionary, as needed.
The app is easy enough for a child to use on their own or with a parent nearby to offer encouragement and to reinforce the learning. Alternatively, it can be used as a teaching experience through interaction with a parent or teacher.
TJ’s Picture Dictionary - a fun way of learning what words mean - by seeing, reading, and hearing!
