It's a curious youngster's dream come true! DK's Children's Illustrated Encyclopedia is an engaging visual guide to the world--with 450 one-to-two-page main entries that are written and checked by experts and arranged in alphabetical order from "Aboriginal Australians" to "Zoos."
Open to "Oceans and Seas," and you'll find a lively spread awash with small photos, maps, and captions about tides, ocean currents, the Gulf Stream, the Kontiki expedition, and the continental shelf, as well as pictures of ocean dwellers from the blue-ringed octopus to the Dall's porpoise. More interested in "Space Flight" than the watery depths? This section features an illustrated cross section of the space shuttle, with a brief overview of space flight, a historical list of "space firsts," and short descriptions of space probes and space stations. The "find out more" box leads insatiable astronaut-wannabes to astronauts, comets and meteors, gravity, moon, planets, rockets and missiles, and satellites.
Written in clear, lively text--and enhanced with more than 3,500 spectacular, specially commissioned illustrations, photographs, and maps; a "Fact Finder" reference section; and a 15-page index--this beautiful, authoritative one-volume encyclopedia will solve arguments, help with school projects, or simply provide hours of contented browsing. This enticing set belongs on every child's bookshelf! (Ages 9 and older) --Karin Snelson
