9780241186985: Picturepedia

Ten thousand stunning photographs and illustrations catalog the wonders of history, space, the natural world, and more in this ultimate resource for kids ages 9–12. Bringing together an amazing array of images to explain every topic under the sun—and beyond—this book has a mini-encyclopedia on every page.

Picturepedia contains chapters on science and technology, nature, geography, culture, sports and hobbies, history, insects, musical instruments, spacecraft, world maps, famous discoveries, prehistoric life, and more. Every double-page spread contains a wealth of information on a given topic, with galleries, lists, sequences, facts, timelines, and much more, while every topic is illustrated with up to 100 photos, graphics, and illustrations.

Perfect for gift giving, or adding to any home or school library, Picturepedia is a stimulating quick-reference that kids will come back to time and time again.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–7—This volume is a playful compendium of facts, trivia, and history, just perfect for browsing. It covers everything from national flags and animal skeletons to gourmet cheese, from the Renaissance to fashion through the decades to just about everything else in between. There's no in-depth discussion in this book, which is touted as "an encyclopedia on every page," but it is copiously and colorfully illustrated, making it an attractive selection for fans of the DK single topic books. The 360 pages make for one heavy book—and its size may deter some younger readers and browsers. Like other DK offerings, it's thoughtfully laid out, with clean page layouts and excellent photos and indexing. But those looking for more information on individual topics won't find it here; rather, it's an ideal book for those looking to kill time in study hall or find a fresh topic for a term paper. VERDICT A fun read that aligns with Common Core, this title is a suitable purchase for larger collections and browsing tables.—Sharon Verbeten, Brown County Library, Green Bay, WI
