A brand-new, traditional general reference title for kids ages 7-9 that 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.
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 and compiled by a team of experts, vetted by educational consultants, and properly leveled to the reading age, DK Children's Encyclopedia is set to become DK's next landmark reference title, and is the ultimate book of knowledge for kids.
