Hands down, this is one of the most informative and comprehensive science encyclopedias I've read for elementary age students. The illustrations are also detailed, informative, and engaging. I recommend the hardcover version of this book often (the softcover is quite thick and will fall apart with frequent use). ...more

This book is cool, but is also hard to use as a reference. Even so, we pulled it out to supplement our science learning. Like all the Usborne books, it is great to look at and to engage the child’s imagination in learning.

This is a seemingly endless reference book on science that is perfect for learners of all ages.

As a young child who wanted to know everything they could I loved this book (Pre iPhone) as it provided me with easy access to so much more knowledge

Really thorough encyclopedia. Love the ease of quicklinks.com where you simply type in your page number to have access to a number of related internet links.
