Great place to start

I have a very inquisitive 6 year old girl. She saw Grandma's encylopedia set a month or so ago and she wanted to read them all! Well, we don't have the space for a set, but this book has a little bit of everything. She will just grab it from the shelf and start going through it, and stop to read whatever catches her eye. If she needs MORE info, we go surfing! (On the WWW of course!) So glad we got this encyclopedia for her. It's also a great starting point for any studying (or exploring) we like to do.

Interesting Encylclopedia

I got this for my twin girls who are in third grade. They think it is a very interesting book and enjoy reading the entries and learning about various things. For that, Scholastic hit a home run. The one big downside is that the number of entries is limited, and some things I would expect to be in a child's encyclopedia are missing. Also, it has a decidedly liberal slant, which is great if you are a liberal and not so great if you are conservative and, either way, wish to share that view of the world with your children.

Great Book

My daughter got this book for her sixth birthday, and she loves it. She is just beginning to read but enjoys looking at the picture and having the text read to her. She has even asked me if we can get one to donate to her class.

Great compendium for the curious child!

My eight-year-old does not enjoy reading, but she can sit with this book for an hour, looking at the pictures and learning about many different topics. She has the Scholastic Illustrated Dictionary as well, which is also a favorite.

Very satisfied !

Condition is very nice. My son enjoy reading it. Thank you.
