Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5 Up

When you're a kid, you think that bigger is better. Machines, buildings, ice-cream cones-they're all better with an increase in dimensions. DK has put together a visual encyclopedia that runs with the concept of cramming a million bits of information into one volume. The book is not 300 pages of arbitrary fact. There is an organization to the madness. Arranged in sections from nature to nutrition, the human body to technology, people and places to art and culture, the breadth of subject matter is impressive. Vital to the operation are the photographs. This may be the single largest collection of pictures kids have ever seen in one place, and each page shows as much as it tells. Readers can open it up, discover something new, and enjoy. A quality selection for most collections.-Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, Holland, MI

    Great for curious young minds!

    This is a great book with so many different subjects in it! My 3 yr old daughter & I spend lots of time looking at the different pictures and talking about them. It is an encyclopedia though, so don't expect it to be more. We love these kinds of books!

    False statement

    On page 243 regarding Cuba, the following statement appears:.... 'although Castro went to rule as another dictator, he improved conditions for the Cuban poor and PROVIDED THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH HOSPITALS AND SCHOOLS.' This is wrong and an insult to the Cuban people. We had an excellent education system, and, of course, hospitals and HMOS. Please educate yourselves before publishing an encyclopedia. I wrote DK Publishing requesting correction of the false statement.

    A Must Have!

    This is a must have staple book in any child's library. You and they will relish the pages for hours. The way that this book is book together is a delight to the eyes and the imagination. There are more than a million things to see in the book if you really take everything in. We use this book to spark conversations, craft projects, story writing and just about anything else when we have a lull in our days or weeks.

    Too Much Going On!

    My daughter bought this book for my son for the holidays. The cover is was caught his eye but when you open the book there is so much information, it is overwhelming. The format of the book is extremely difficult to read. This book was bought for my son who is 9. It is really meant for an older child, approximately 12. This book is certainly not for a child who has difficulty reading and that is ashame because I think the premise of the book is great but the layout needs to be possibly changed.
