This new edition of the popular The Kingfisher Children's Encyclopedia covers an astoundingly broad range of subjects from Australian Aborigines, balloons and airships, and the latest computer innovations, to an understanding of the universe, warfare, women's rights, and an examination of x-rays and zoology.
The encyclopedia is alphabetically organized with headwords arranged in the top left-hand corner of every page. Authoritative text offers thorough coverage of each subject, while bright and informative original artwork, photographs, and captions really maximize the learning potential and enhance the textual information. Cross-reference boxes encourage further reading, while fact and chronology boxes provide clear, quick reference points for homework and fact-checking. A fact-finder at the back of the encyclopedia has a timeline of key historical events and personalities from around the world.
