Reviews


"Very highly recommended as a primary source of information for children in grades K-5. " - Catholic Library World

“This revision is ideal for answering inquiries on subjects such as states, countries, provinces, world leaders, explorers, inventions, artists, athletes, animals, diseases, battles, and holidays. This set will be helpful to students new to independent research.” -School Library Journal

“This encyclopedia, written for children to enjoy and beautifully illustrated, would be an excellent addition to any educational library for children, at home, at school or at a public library.”- American Reference Books Annual

“The second edition of this exciting encyclopedia is geared to young readers and inquirers especially those who have high reading interests and low reading levels; in other words, the intellectually curious. The editors have successfully incorporated in this work the best way to educate and guide the young on how to start and conduct research…One could say that the editors have provided a good combination of 'research and fun,' a healthy combination…The capstone of the work is its last volume which contains atlas maps and a cumulative index. Once again clear descriptions provide directions for efficient usage and interpretation. Highly recommended for all libraries that service the young, such as elementary, lower middle school, public, special and home libraries.” - Catholic Library World
