This engaging, traditional-style general reference book for kids ages 7–9 encompasses all that DK is about: age-appropriate, jargon-free text accompanied by detailed images on a variety of topics all in one place, from science and nature to history and the arts. It is a must-have resource for every student's shelf. 

Packed with information, each single-page entry—organized A to Z—in DK Children's Encyclopedia features a key topic explained in a concise, age-appropriate, highly visual manner, with fun facts and extensive cross-references revealing the links between subject areas. Kids can learn about Ancient Rome, chemistry, evolution, microscopic life, robots, vikings, and so much more.

Written, edited, and designed by a team of experts, vetted by educational consultants, and properly leveled to the reading age, DK Children's Encyclopedia is DK's landmark reference title and the ultimate book of knowledge for kids.

About the Author:

Trusted by parents, teachers, librarians, and kids across the world, DK is an award-winning publisher of visual reference books for children, including the DK Eyewitness Books, DK findout!, and Maker Lab series. DK books combine clear photography and illustration with expert text to show you what others only tell you.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–5—When a title claims to be, on the cover no less, "the book that explains everything," well, that's a tough bill to fill. As usual, DK delivers—OK, maybe it doesn't explain everything, but this is a graphically pleasing compendium of more than 250 topics, such as the arts, people, history, nature, technology, and the human body. Within these, major subcategories are covered, including those required by Common Core, and the extensive cross-referencing will have students eagerly turning pages. Obviously, no encyclopedia can do it all, but with a clear legend, enticing page spreads, and clever pullouts, this hefty volume contains thoroughly absorbing facts. Readers will learn that one-quarter of the human body is comprised of carbon and that things that fall into black holes are considered "spaghettified." VERDICT Whether students are interested in newts, wars, ear drums, or outer space, they'll appreciate this entertaining, colorful way to begin more thorough research.—Sharon Verbeten, Brown County Library, Green Bay, WI
