Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The all-new Kingfisher Children's Encyclopedia has been specially designed to provide today's young readers with the latest information, state-of-the-art graphics and illustrations, and a functional and inviting layout that makes it even quicker and easier for them to find the information they seek. There's comprehensive coverage of all the topics a child could wish to research, including geography, science and technology, natural resources, animal life, transportation, communications, astronomy, history and prehistory, politics, religion, sports, and the arts. Clear, alphabetical organization and a simple cross-referencing feature make it easier to gather information on a particular topic and to tackle homework assignments. This generously illustrated encyclopedia will entertain, educate, and illuminate — a marvelous resource for casual browsing, school assignments, home reference, and the ideal holiday gift for a favorite youngster. Special Features: Headwords always appear in the upper left corner of the page for quick reference. All entries begin with a concise definition of the subject. Text can be read section by section, or as a complete article. Complex diagrams are fully annotated for easy comprehension. Fast Fact boxes contain key facts and essential data. Cross-reference boxes guide the reader to realted articles and subject areas.

Synopsis:

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.
