5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Getting Kids Hooked on Books, 17 Mar. 2003
By 
This book has pretty much single-handedly got my toddler interested in books. It's perfectly designed to appeal to a wide range of kids from toddlers right through to the end of primary school.
It's not really a dictionary, more a visual encyclopaedia, arranged into a wide variety of topics like The Human Body, Transport, and Musical Instruments. Every page comes crammed with photographs and high-quality illustrations which will appeal to the youngsters. There's not a huge amount of text but what there is is informative enough to keep the older kids interested. It appears the Ultimate Visual Dictionary is almost a "best of" the excellent Dorling Kindersley Eye-Witness books.
The book is so large, and covers such a range of topics, that kids will continue to find something new in it for months and years. After three years it's still my son's favourite book, which he dips into several times a week. It's also been a good learning tool as it pricks his interest in all sorts of topics and leads him deeper into the subjects.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate, 13 Jan. 2004
By 
Marian Cox-Clarke (Chichester, West Sussex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This dictionary gives a wonderful 'insight' into things we sometimes take for granted. Step into this inside world and things will never be humdrum again.
This is an excellent reference book to have closeby as an aid with projects etc. It will greatly enhance your knowledge. The details are superb and the 'science bit' well explained. If you have this book on your shelf, buy it for someone else, they will thank you for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars a lovely and useful book, 2 Mar. 2007

Mr. Qi Wang - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Yes, I want to say it is one of the best visual dictionary at present, roundly and detailedly. It could be the very convenient reference book to approach those complex and uncommon scientific Nouns. It is excellnet. But only one thing I want to emphaisze is that all the background is mere white, which obviously has been proven that is not very adapted to clearly show many light-colour pictures inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book for science minded kids, 12 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
The paperback version of this book is about 6 inches by 5 inches, and at least 2" thick. Very cool. Great resource for kids who enjoy knowing how things work and what things are called. (not to mention the adults who have to live with them.)
