Synopsis

The Kingfisher Children's Encyclopedia by Aimee Johnson

Kingfisher's encyclopedias are award-winning, information-packed reference books for all the family. The new, updated editions are beautiful versions of these trusted favourites - perfect for gifts and reference alike. If you want one children's general encyclopedia, this is it! Fully revised and updated, to reflect the latest developments in science, technology, and world events, The Kingfisher Children's Encyclopedia, 3rd edition, is a trusted resource for helping children understand the world we live in. The encyclopedia is alphabetically organized with headwords in the top left-hand corner for easy browsing. Authoritative text offers thorough coverage of each subject, while bright and informative original artwork, photographs, and captions provide plenty of visual interest. Cross-reference boxes encourage research skills, and fact and chronology boxes provide quick reference points for homework and reports. A fact-finder at the back of the encyclopedia has a timeline of key historical events and personalities from around the world. With entries on everything from Australian Aboriginal people to zoology, this encyclopedia is the ultimate one-stop reference for home or classroom.

Reviews

Libraries in need of a one-volume general reference for children (except report-writers looking for biographical information) should consider this offering. It will help them choose and narrow topics, and will appeal to browsers
