Booklist Review

Here's a set young children can use independently, both for browsing and looking up specific information. Designed for the primary grades, it includes many of the features in "regular" encyclopedias, such as alphabetical arrangement of articles with an index volume at the end, guide words at the top of each page, cross-references to related articles, and pronunciation guides. It also includes entries on every letter of the alphabet, many hands-on activities, and four types of color-coded articles (green borders for articles on countries, blue for U.S. states, red for Canadian provinces, and colored backgrounds for "special feature articles"). Most regular entries are half a page, often with a photograph or other illustration. States and Canadian provinces are given two-page spreads, and countries get three pages, all with fact box, map, and brief history. Feature articles, such as Automobile, Dinosaur, Library, Nutrition, and Orchestra, rate three to four pages and include several photos and charts. There is a North American emphasis, with brief articles on Canadian prime ministers and U.S. presidents but almost no other world leaders. There is coverage of assorted figures in sports and pop music: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Celine Dion, Gordie Howe, Bob Marley, Oprah Winfrey, for example. The reading level and large type make these slender volumes easier to use and more inviting than Children's Britannica. Keeping in mind that this is a first encyclopedia, it's understandable that the articles are usually found where children would look--Indians, American (not Native Americans) and Colonies, thirteenwith a few cross-references. Occasionally there are unexpected exceptions, such as Braces, see Orthodontics, and no cross-reference from Oil (which covers primarily animal and vegetable oils) to Petroleum. Pictures don't always illustrate the material. For example, in the National Park feature, a Japanese macaque is pictured but no parks in Japan are described. The activities range from obvious (make a leaf collection using a purchased photo album) to moderately creative (ice cream "cookiewiches" and a number game). Overall, this is an attractive resource that should appeal even to children who don't generally turn to a printed encyclopedia for fun and useful information. Recommended for school and public libraries.
