I have always been an encyclopedia lover. I remember as a little kid reading and re-reading the encyclopedias we had at home and loving all the beautiful and colourful images and all of the amazing information they contained. I am a total book worm and I even love the way new books SMELL, yup, you’ll catch me smelling new books anytime I get one.
This month I focused on picking up some amazing encyclopedias and colourful, magical books for the boy’s home library from DK Books. I have to say that I was super excited to receive the package myself and I ended up sitting with the boys flipping through these with them. You can spend hours going through beautiful books, learning something new on every page.
Here are the great books we picked.
Ten thousand stunning photographs and illustrations catalogue the wonders of history, space, the natural world, and more in this ultimate resource for kids ages 9-12. Bringing together an amazing array of images to explain every topic under the sun-and beyond-this book has a mini-encyclopedia on every page.
Picturepedia contains chapters on science and technology, nature, geography, culture, sports and hobbies, history, insects, musical instruments, spacecraft, world maps, famous discoveries, prehistoric life, and more. Every double-page spread contains a wealth of information on a given topic, with galleries, lists, sequences, facts, timelines, and much more, while every topic is illustrated with up to 100 photos, graphics, and illustrations.
Perfect for gift-giving, or adding to any home or school library, Picturepedia is a stimulating quick-reference that kids will come back to time and time again.
All I have to say about this one is, a must-have for a home library. I love all the amazing eye-catching, colourful images and the boys spend hours flipping through its pages.
Science as you’ve never seen it before.
Illustrated with the latest CGI technology, this children’s encyclopedia brings a groundbreaking new visual approach to the world of science. Crystal-clear computer-generated artworks pack the pages to reveal and explain spectacular aspects of the scientific world. Bursting with astonishing 3-D images, Science! reveals core science in stunning detail, from nanoparticles and elemental forces to the phenomenal wonders of the universe.
Created in association with the Smithsonian Institution, this book is packed with essential information and quirky facts that will appeal to both curious kids and interested adults. Easy-to-read, informative text encourages reading, and families will find fun, new science facts on every page.
This book is filled with facts and lots and lots of information that is easy to digest and easy to read. Another home library must-have.
