Love it! Perfect!

I have wanted an actual physical World Book set for my son for so long because I loved having one when I was growing up. This is perfect!

Burton, MI

Put to use right away

I just ordered the 2015 full set as World book had a terrific deal. Even though it is 2017, I feel I can keep the set current with the annual yearbook. Arrived quickly and well packaged. I enjoyed unwrapping each volume and thumbing through as I placed on the bookshelf. The are truly beautiful and look great on the bookshelf!


Great Memories

I have great memories just sitting there reading the 1969 World Book that my parents had when I was a kid. I love seeing all of my boys sitting there reading and enjoying this great set of books. I love the fact how you can find all this info and you as a parent don't have to worry about what they're gonna find on Google. Its a balance, but I like having that sense that they aren't going to stumble into something really bad.


Real Information Instead of Disinformation

<p>Let me start by saying that our background is in library sciences and my husband teaches at a community college. He regularly sees students who do not know a reliable source from propaganda nor do they know how to find information for themselves outside of Google. We wanted more for our kids, so we got them the encyclopedia. Now when they come to us with a question, we ask if they checked the encyclopedia for an answer first. In the last week our daughters have looked up subjects such as bees and Vikings, and given recent headlines, Russia.</p><p>Our reading age children are 7 and 10 and both appreciate the books.</p>

<p>I love the World Book. It is so easy to look things up on the Internet to get instant answers to almost anything. However, I love to browse thru the books. I always find interesting things that get my attention and interest. In addition there is the feel of a book in your hands that the Internet can not match.</p>
