Kindergarten-Grade 6—Boasting over 4000 entries and 2500 brightly detailed illustrations and photographs, this resource is a must-have for any collection serving children. A two-page introduction explains how data is organized—entries are divided into 10 broad categories, among them "Space," "Culture," "History and Politics," and "The Human Body." The amount of information presented for each topic is just right, and a cross-reference icon ensures positive results for novice researchers. The book is a particularly good fit for ESL students and visual learners, as time lines, definitions, fast facts ("Flattened out, a pair of lungs would cover a tennis court"), maps, collections (e.g., a complete catalog of national flags), and short blocks of text fill every page to its fullest. This is a print reference work to rival the graphics-laden resources available electronically. It won't sit on the shelf.—Christina Connolly, Clark University, Worcester, MA END
