Description

Brings the world into view for children. With its 450 featured subjects and over 1,500 sub-entries, this encylopedia entices children away from the TV to read, look and discover for themselves. By placing the "Eyewitness" format within the A-Z organization of the contents, this book contains the most up-to-date cartographic and political information available. Each A-Z entry is a self-contained topic, but the planned cross-referencing system helps the reader travel from one entry to another. Timelines on historical subjects reflect the latest world events and up-to-date population, occupation and economic statistics are included as well as a factfinder with statistical information.show more
