From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-Copious and colorful artifacts, illustrations, photographs, and charts grace the pages of this attractive and useful encyclopedia. "Space," "Earth," "Nature," "Human Body," "Science," and "History" are major sections found in the book, with chapters in "Nature," for example, covering "How Life Began," "The Living World," "Vertebrates," and "Invertebrates." Articles within these chapters, addressing particular vertebrates, for example, occupy a spread each. Compelling headings or questions draw further attention to each topic, while cutaways provide a better view of many entries, including those on the Tyrannosaurus rex, cells, and the Parthenon. The title concludes with a section offering a tree of life chart, world maps, conversion charts, and a glossary of terms. The wealth of knowledge that is supported here by images and creative layouts will encourage students to learn more about topics they study in school and cause them to gravitate toward new areas of interest. In addition, the content will also support the Common Core State Standards.-Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District, PAα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

From Booklist:

Packed with information in six sections (“Space,” “Earth,” “Nature,” “Human Body,” “Science” and “History”), this lavishly illustrated volume provides accessible and engaging information for middle-grade learners and up. Every page is tightly laid out with facts, photos, illustrations, and impressive 3-D renditions. Although too broad for targeted research, the Smithsonian Knowledge Encyclopedia allows readers to become immersed in the details and visuals that abound. This text fits the bill for school and public libraries interested in general reference at a reasonable price point. --Blaire Ranucci
