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.
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.
