Comprehensive Coverage of Today's World: From science and technology to nature and the living world, from space and the universe to history and the arts, the scope of the Encyclopedia reflects the educational needs of children in the new millennium. The 500 featured entries cover key topics that children will want to look up, while a futher 2,000 subentries provide information on a wide range of subjects. In addition, an illustrated 30-page Fact Finder reference section combines artwork and graphics to present statistical information in a visually exciting way.
Informative Text and Stunning Images: Packed with over 4,500 full-color photographs, original artwork, and detailed maps and charts, this encyclopedia is the most richly illustrated book of its kind. Close-up photographs of animals and plants, cutaway illustrations of machines and buildings, and reconstructions of past people and places all combine to open up topics in a new and stimulating way. Each page is designed to attract readers at many different levels, while lively informative text communicates in a language that children can understand.
Follow A Path Of Discovery: Each A-Z entry is a self-contained topic, but a carefully planned cross-referencing system encourages the reader to travel easily from one related entry to another. This helps children to place information in a wider context and so creates a fascinating series of "journeys".
A highly illustrated one-volume encyclopedia containing 450 main entries ranging from Aboriginal Australians to Zoos.

If you are familiar with the typical Dorling-Kindersley style, you know that you will be in for a visual treat. The illustrations and layout are superb. The encyclopedia is grouped by themes rather than individual entries, such as "cities" or "ocean animals" and are written in a clearly understandable language (my daughter is 10). My daughter loves browsing it and looking at all the pictures.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
