Product Description

Amazon Review

This encyclopedia can make anyone feel like a scientist! Not only does it have fascinating facts on everything from atoms to zephyrs, it also shows how scientists work--describing, measuring and asking questions about the world. Filled with detailed, sharp illustrations and eye-catching photographs, this book could keep a curious kid (or adult!) occupied for weeks. The one- and two-page entries are thematically organized--much more useful than alphabetical entries for making connections and thinking about whole systems. Some of the best categories are "Reactions", "Materials", "Weather", "Space" and "How Living Things Work". But every entry has accurate, well-written text cross-indexed to related pages and to the "Fact Finder" section in the back, with charts, tables and maps to use with each section. A glossary and index round out this thorough package. You may grow so attached to this fantastic encyclopedia that you never want to leave it behind.... For portability, we recommend the pocket version, which weighs less, but is jam-packed with great science. And for budding biologists who can't get enough of the "Living Things" section in the Science Encyclopedia, the The DK Nature Encyclopedia is sure to please. (Ages 9 to 12) --Therese Littleton

Format: Hardcover
I guess initially, one might be mistaken that this, after a long line of childrens science books, is yet another one. Perhaps slightly shinier and with brighter pictures. Yes I was sceptical. My girls and I went through it and to my surprise, it was well written and layed out. Keeping the attention of children especially girls and science is easy with the DK science encyclopedia. I come from a science background and was impressed with the amount of information they have actually crammed in just a couple of pages per title. It is a great book to capture their curiosity. There is nothing quite so magical as children and books and this one's purely enchanting.

My soon-to-be 9 yr old grandson cannot put this book down! He even wants to explore it in place of a bedtime story! Perfect for those who have an interest in these things, it may even be a stepping stone towards more specific areas, who knows...

I bought the book 2nd hand for a steal away price. The book was in good nick and professionally packaged. My 10yr old niece will have a wide breath of scientific facts after she's done reading it. Amazing couldn't have hoped for a better experience.
