Grade 5 Up—When you're a kid, you think that bigger is better. Machines, buildings, ice-cream cones—they're all better with an increase in dimensions. DK has put together a visual encyclopedia that runs with the concept of cramming a million bits of information into one volume. The book is not 300 pages of arbitrary fact. There is an organization to the madness. Arranged in sections from nature to nutrition, the human body to technology, people and places to art and culture, the breadth of subject matter is impressive. Vital to the operation are the photographs. This may be the single largest collection of pictures kids have ever seen in one place, and each page shows as much as it tells. Readers can open it up, discover something new, and enjoy. A quality selection for most collections.
Inside is a stunning, comprehensive visual encyclopedia featuring gorgeous photography that not only illustrates, but educates. This encyclopedia is driven by its striking imagery that brings more than one million things to light. It is a crucial addition to homes and classrooms alike.
