Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The breadth of information contained in this colorful encyclopedia (there are more than 4,000 entries) make it worthy of any child's desk. Broad categories like “Space,” “Living World,” “Culture,” and “The Human Body” are explored through detail-rich subsections accompanied by plenty of photographs, drawings and diagrams. Overarching questions such as “What is government?” provide comprehensible examination of difficult concepts with plenty of cues to launch additional exploration into the extensive range of topics. Ages 7–up. (July)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 6—Boasting over 4000 entries and 2500 brightly detailed illustrations and photographs, this resource is a must-have for any collection serving children. A two-page introduction explains how data is organized—entries are divided into 10 broad categories, among them "Space," "Culture," "History and Politics," and "The Human Body." The amount of information presented for each topic is just right, and a cross-reference icon ensures positive results for novice researchers. The book is a particularly good fit for ESL students and visual learners, as time lines, definitions, fast facts ("Flattened out, a pair of lungs would cover a tennis court"), maps, collections (e.g., a complete catalog of national flags), and short blocks of text fill every page to its fullest. This is a print reference work to rival the graphics-laden resources available electronically. It won't sit on the shelf.—Christina Connolly, Clark University, Worcester, MA
