A bold new approach to family reference that uses 3-D rendered images to explore the wonders of the world in unprecedented detail—from such categories as space, the human body, and history.
Created in association with the Smithsonian Institution and using the latest CGI technology to illustrate concepts, Knowledge Encyclopedia is divided into six chapters—Space, Earth, Nature, Human Body, Science & Technology, and History & Culture. These chapters combine with a reference section in bringing a wide range of topics to life. Illustrated with fascinating facts, maps, timelines, and graphics, this reference book makes complex subjects easy to understand.
Knowledge Encyclopedia is the perfect resource for kids, whether to help with homework or to pique their curiosity.

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.
