    Verified Purchase

    I bought this dictionary for my Scrabble-loving parents who are losing their eyesight. I was very disappointed when I saw it. For a large print dictionary, it should be twice the size of a normal dictionary - at least - if it's going to have the same amount of words in it. This is less than half the size of a normal dictionary, meaning the vocabulary in it is not nearly as extensive as a normal dictionary - definitely not beneficial for Scrabble players.

    Verified Purchase

    Though I haven't seen this Dictionary myself because I ordered it for my father and had it shipped to him, out of state, I would recommend it. He seems very pleased becasue he can't read regular print with his failing sight. This and the Thesaurus I also ordered were shipped promptly and he is appreciative.
