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.

Ages 7-up. (July) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
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 Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
