About this title
An encyclopedia designed especially to meet the needs of elementary, junior high, and high school students.From Booklist:
World Book continues to be a first choice for libraries, schools, and homes. It is current, accessible, easy to use, and well illustrated. The 2008 print edition has 67 new articles. They include Clooney, George; Electronic games; and Google. Articles that have been revised or rewritten include Cremation, Brain, Emotion, and Shoshone Indians. More than 400 maps have been added or revised, including those for Alabama, Alberta, California, Panama Canal, Rio de Janeiro, and Texas. There are 400 new photographs. Some 300 bibliographies have been revised. World Book is generally up-to-date, although the revision deadline is in October, earlier than Compton’s and The New Book of Knowledge, and no postdeadline events were included. (It’s worth noting, however, that the 2009 World Book will be available in November.) The announcements of presidential candidacies appear in the entries on Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama. The volatile situation in the Middle East receives coverage, including the UN sanctions against Iran and the troop surge in Iraq. The article on China has some political information from 2003. The population figure for China is a 2008 estimate based on the 2000 census. World Book’s index is detailed and easy to use, and the “Research Guide” found in the index volume is useful for students who need help organizing a project. Offering high-quality, current, accurate information in an attractive package, World Book serves a wide range of users, from elementary-school students to adults. --Barbara Bibel
