Old dictionaries are priceless in today’s modern world. Newer versions of standard dictionaries constantly have updates that may not be for the best, such as removed words, slang, and narrow ideas. That’s why we like collecting old dictionaries.
In our homeschool, we’ve also learned that looking up words in online dictionaries is not always successful. When reading older books and looking up the meaning of seldom-used words, it’s so important for the student to find the definition. But the world of the internet is not always so knowledgeable, or helpful.
If this isn’t at the very core of what Knowledge Keepers is all about, I just don’t know what is!
