When my son started out fourth grade, I wanted to find an encyclopedia for him that he can understand. Other children encyclopedias are too hard for him to comprehend. I found this one in the library and after trying it out on my son, ordered my own copy from Amazon. It is an excellent starter encyclopedia. Beautiful pictures, big font size, simple sentences, covers a big variety of subjects. I read with my son 4 pages a day (takes about 10 minutes if he isn't distracted, half an hour if he is, and he is most of the time) and it took us 5 months to finish the whole book because some days we skip. He complains sometimes but it often invokes his interest so that he would look up about something on the internet to learn more. It has interesting project recommendations that my son sometimes followed. For example: wrap up a doll in strips of cloth to make your own mummy. Can always unwrap it later. Perfect book for homeschoolers, especially.

There is one mistake in the book that cracked me up. In one page, it talks about an otter but shows the picture of a cat! Somebody slipped in the wrong picture. But other than that, the book is really good. I highly recommend it for kids starting to understand simply explanations about the world.

P.S. If you are look for more than one encyclopedia at this level, there is another one I also reviewed; click on my name to find it. It's just as good and I had my son finish that one too. I recommend buying both.

I purchased this because I knew of a small version of the book and wanted one for myself. Was I surprised!! This is a full-sized book, an enlarged version of the one I had seen. It has all of the information of the small version, just much easier to see the photos and read the text. It's a good one-volume overview of things young children can be interested in.
