Are paper dictionaries endangered items?

Paper Dictionary...endangered?

When I was in grade school, I used to love getting a new dictionary. Working my way through a particular letter was one of those beginning of the year pledges that usually lasted a few weeks (ok, a few days)…but still, I loved dictionaries.

So when this year’s new edition of the Scholastic Pocket Dictionary arrived this week, I wondered whether kids still use the old-fashion paper versions. I know in my own work, I’ve been converted over to an electronic version.

When was the last time you used a paper dictionary?
