Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3�7—This user-friendly annual is arranged in an eye-catching layout by subject categories and offers a wealth of informative text (facts, trivia, experiments, etc.) alongside numerous captioned photographs of people, places, and things, as well as charts and maps. The book also offers learning aids, such as puzzles and quizzes. While significant updating is not apparent, students can find Eli Manning's birthday and a definition of the greenhouse effect, and learn how to read a food label. This title supplements the Common Core curriculum by making fact-finding enjoyable; it is useful for homework and will be in demand for recreational reading.—Cara Moffett, A.R. Lewis Elementary School, Pickens, SC
