First Earth Encyclopedia
How big is the Sahara? Which products are in greatest demand around the world? You just might need a good reference book to come up with the answers to these and many other questions. First Earth Encyclopedia by DK has the same visual appeal as other DK products and is packed full of information and interesting facts for children from a secular perspective. Every page is laid out in a scrapbooking style with photographs and accompanying text. An extension question is printed at the bottom of each even-numbered page and the answer can be found at the bottom of the odd numbered pages (upside down). "Turn and Learn" icons tell you where to look for additional information within the book, and "Hands on' activities show you how you can try some things for yourself. You will find these scattered through the color-coded pages of the book. Children will find information on the world's physical geography, our living world (ecosystems), human geography, and maps. A reference section at the back of the book includes a map of the world, photos of unique locations on earth, a view of the earth at night, a quiz, glossary and more. I'm always a fan of DK books even for non-reading, younger children. This hardcover, 136-page book is no exception. ~ Donna
