Product description

Amazon Review

This is a neat and useful small encyclopedia with well-labelled, clear illustrations and a good range of subjects. Contents are arranged into nine sections: space, the earth, transport, the living world, the human body, science and technology, transport, the world, people and society, history and a small reference section. Each subject covers a double page and comprises a short introduction, general information and several colour diagrams, drawings or photographs. There are also visual timelines on several of the topics, to show what happened when, and colour maps of countries together with a gazetteer index.

Good for homework or just browsing. Suggested age range 8 to 13 years, but quite interesting for grown-ups too.


A visual encyclopedia with 1000 facts thematically organised into nine sections: space, the Earth, the living world, human body, science and technology, transport, the world, people, society and history. There are time-lines and cross-referenced connected topics to support school study.
