Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
DK and Google team up to create a second reference guide utilizing the Internet with e.encyclopedia science. Created with the same format as the initial e.encyclopedia, the book invites readers to visit the book's Web site; when readers enter key words interspersed throughout the text, this Web site acts as a gateway to additional Web sites with further relevant information, pictures and video clips. As with the first title, the publisher consistently monitors these selected links to ensure their functionality and appropriateness of content. The scientific focus of this edition delves into such broad categories as "Forces and Energy" and "Animals" which are then subdivided into detailed sections such as "Acoustics," "Cameras," "Crustaceans" and "Echinoderms."

School Library Journal
Gr 4-9-Like its companion, the e.encyclopedia (DK, 2003), this title is a product of the partnership between the publisher and Google. It contains eight topical sections from "Matter and Materials" to "Animals" to the "Human Body." Within these sections, visually attractive spreads introduce such topics as "Atoms" and the "Periodic Table" with a paragraph of text and detailed captions. For extended inquiries or more detail on these subjects, readers are directed to a content-safe site; a keyword suggestion is flagged by an icon on the spread. A search for astronauts results in plenty of NASA and ESA pages, complete with history, pictures, and current news, while photosynthesis provides a meager two links geared to younger students. The plentiful and exciting illustrations are a main selling point; they move the eye along, offering a smorgasbord of information. Students in search of a topic to investigate will find this a useful reference in that it encourages browsing. It is also likely to be a great tool for students who prefer the Internet over a book.-Carol Marshall, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
