5th grade daughter needs a dictionary that also shows the root word.?

Get the Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary. Are you sure your home's hardcover dictionary does not show the root word?
Pretty much all dictionaries show the root word. Look in the ( ) at the beginning of the definition, right after the pronunciation. It says what the word came from, & then the roots of that word.
