What is the best dictionary for a 5th grader?

My son has frequent need of a dictionary this year and our old Websters with the fine print is frustrating him. But when I go to the bookstore and look for school dictionaries I find mostly spelling dictionaries or dictionaries for little kids. I want a straightforward, easy to navigate dictionary with reasonably large type, a large selection of words, and not too much that is unnecessary like pronunciation guides.
