Picturepedia, from DK Publishing and the Smithsonian, is a visual encyclopedia packed full of interesting and informative material, with over 10,000 pictures! Each page is covered in concise information, and colorful pictures clearly and beautifully illustrate the facts and concepts. Topics are categorized by science and technology, nature, geography, culture, sports and hobbies, and history. They range from where food comes from to different types of snakes, from the history of fashion to the mechanics of baseball, with something to interest everyone! Picturepedia is similar to the Knowledge Encyclopedia (item #061055), but with less detail and more topics and pictures. This book contains evolutionary ideas and other secular concepts. 360 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel

This an excellent book for those young, inquiring minds. Arranged thematically, this brilliantly colored and illustrated reference guide is overflowing with heaps of interesting information. The book is arranged by the following topics: Our World, Animals and Plants, How Your Body Works, History, How People Live, Science, How Things Work, Space, and Maps of the World. Learn about various geological phenomena in the Our World section or perhaps about the planets in the Space section. Perhaps your child is more interested in the technical side of things. In this case, visit the How Things Work section to find out how many common everyday appliances like clocks, telephones, or refrigerators work. No matter where you child's interest may lie, there is a wealth of information to be garnered from this volume. In this 2014 version of Usborne Internet-Linked books, almost every page includes website links and QR scan codes which provide access to a myriad of videos, charts, graphs, as well as info and research links. The smaller softcover version is an exact replica of the larger hardcover edition. 320 pgs.
