Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stunning attempt to erase Jewish identity - typical anti-semitic nonsense.
By May on February 17, 2021
Specifically, calling out the holiness of two religions while excluding Judaism.

Judaism, the first monotheism, with 5000 years of recorded history - mind you, once of the only consistent recordings since the beginning of recordings, is erased from existence in the Middle East completely. Yes, there's a tiny blurb about the Holocaust and a blurb as a world religion - typical garbage; we can't deny the Holocaust, but we can completely erase their existence in the Middle East. There are sections on the Hittites and the emergence of world religions - Judaism isn't there either.

Right, two religions wrestled for control over Israel for a Millenium AFTER the Jewish world was headquartered there for millennia - with a continued presence through the 'wars' and since. As it were, Jerusalem, the name itself, is Hebrew, and Jews lived there for thousands of years.

This isn't about needing recognition; it's just complete erasure at its finest, cloaked conveniently in creative writing. So your children may now ask, "Why are the Jewish people out there anyway? It seems like this place, 'Palestine,' is really important to Christians and Muslims.

From National Geographic. "They (Jewish people) founded the kingdom of Judah, and established Jerusalem as its capital sometime around 1000 B.C. The great Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by Nebuchadrezzar II around 587–586 B.C. After Cyrus freed the Jews from exile in Babylon in 538 B.C., they returned to Jerusalem to rebuild their temple and spiritual homeland."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently written and laid out
By KC on January 29, 2019
Bought this for my 7 year old who is an avid reader. This book is fantastic. She reads this book and often discusses what she’s learned or asks questions about some of the more confusing topics. This has definitely expanded her knowledge and curiosity.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great encyclopedia! I would definitely recommend to others
By KB on February 15, 2018
A gift for my son that will hopefully last a very long time. There’s a ton of information packed into each page - some too much for him to understand - but WOW! What a great encyclopedia! I would definitely recommend to others.
