The Primary Computer Dictionary.
Girard, Suzanne; Willing, Kathlene
Suitable for children from kindergarten to grade three, this dictionary is designed to introduce young children to computer terminology at a level that they will understand and find useful. It is also suitable for parents as a home resource, for library use, and as a handbook for teachers. The first sentence of each definition contains the kernel of meaning, followed by additional explanation. The illustrations--which include diagrams, a cartoon computer character, and practice keyboards--extend the definitions and involve readers. The dictionary contains definitions for 50 words which serve as a necessary base for working with computers. The vocabulary was drawn from six categories: general concepts, hardware, commands, programs, keys, and language. (HTH)
