“Whether you are in an elementary, middle, or high school, this set is a must; the titles cover topics in most curricula. At my high school, I anticipate our World Language and Social Studies teachers using Wonders of the World and The Age of Knights and Castles, our astronomy teacher using Space Exploration, and the Social Studies and Science departments using Inventions and Discoveries. Many of the books will also be interesting to upper elementary and middle school students who are looking for a nonfiction read.”

“A Look At . . . is a remarkable storehouse of interesting and exciting information…. A review probably doesn’t do justice to this magnificent series; the volumes must be seen to be fully appreciated. This set is highly recommended for school and public libraries serving patrons ages 9-14. This would also be a valuable addition to home libraries.
