New Children's Encyclopedia (Smithsonian)
This thematic encyclopedia includes 10 areas of study (space, earth, environment/ecology, living world, continents, culture, history/politics, science, technology, and the human body). This would make a great addition to a young learner’s resource library. With engaging photos and illustrations, the reader is guided through their studies of facts and stats in a user-friendly way. For a learner who is interested in learning the basics and fun facts about these areas of study, this is a great starter encyclopedia. In learning about the human body, you are introduced to the 10 body systems and attributes of each system. For example, the skeletal system you are introduced to the different types of bones (long, short, flat, and irregular) and the types of joints. There is not an exhaustive list of every single bone in the body but fun facts about certain bones and joints. The same can be illustrated for studying the continents. There are wonderful geographical maps provided for each continent that list each country, but the content is giving the learner the highlights of each continent. Children will love the captivating images and illustrations. Pgs.304 | Paperback ~Rebecca
