Illustrated in full colour throughout and packed with information about people, places, ideas, events and the world around us, this encyclopedia provides the perfect introduction to the world of knowledge.
With over 700 entries, it covers 130 different subjects – from Ancient Greece to Modern America, Breathing and Eating to Butterflies and Moths, Climate and Weather to Computers and Electronics – and is ideal both for quick fact-checking or as a source of information for more detailed projects.
The subjects are arranged thematically, which presents information in a wider context, and fact panels and detailed captions throughout invite the reader to ‘browse’ through the subjects and explore them in more depth. Tables containing geographic, astrological and biographical details at the end of the book provide further essential information.
A comprehensive contents list and a 12-page index enable readers to find the information they want quickly and easily.
