I have never really like the cartoon pictures Usborne has used in the past, however these colorful pictures are very impressive. There are bright pictures on each page - the layout is orderly and informative, not overcrowded. The contents of this book seems to be a compilation of the other "First Encyclopedia" series with a few different pictures. I have noticed that some of the information from the original series has been omitted or moved to different sections.

The topics are: Our World, Animals and Plants, How Your Body Works, History, How People Live, Science, How Things Work, Space, Maps of the World, and a section on interesting facts.

It is big and chunky, so not a very friendly couch book like the actual series, although it is definetly a great resource. We use it as our science spine for elementary grades.

I'm a homeschooling mom and discovered Usborne books about 1 month ago. The internet linked books are fabulous because they include links to websites. These websites have so much information to supplement what we are learning.

For example, my 10 yr old and I are learning abour Space this week. We've been reading about the space shuttle and astronauts. In addition, once we went to the Usborne site it directed us to an interactive activity. We were able to simulate a shuttle launch and we also completed a space mission by making the needed repairs to a module.

Activities such as these are helping to reinforce what we're reading and that's why I recommend the Usborne internet-linked books.

We love this book! My kids always enjoyed Usborne books in the past (and I grew up on them), but the change they seem to have made from cartoon type pictures to photos is fabulous. This book is fantastic and we use it as one of the primary pieces of our homeschool curriculum. My 6 year old has repeatedly told me that his favorite part of school is using the internet links for this book. They have really added a lot to his studies and helped solidify his learning. I highly recommend this book for anyone with young children with curious minds!

This is a wonderful book for children to have in their homes. I am still a believer in having the actual book in front of them. An encyclopedia that you can hold and glance through makes it easier to catch the eye on topics that may interest them. This is internet linked also if they want to find out more about certain topics. This is colorful and very informational. We love it.

My son's Kindergarten teacher has several of the "My First Encyclopedia" books in her classroom library and they are his favorite by far, he checks those out more than any others. This is a hardback of all those compiled together into one AMAZING book! The pictures are captivating. the facts are on a level just perfect for the elementary age student. Pictures are colorful and inviting enough to keep the attention of a Kindergarten student and the facts and information in the book makes it the perfect reference tool for a 5th grader. We checked the price at the "Big Book Store with the Coffee Shop Inside", Woozers!!! Trust me, you are much better off ordering it here on Amazon.

Great pics and age appropriate content/volume of information- Very satisfied with that aspect.
Christian perspective- not too much to get worked up about but, in a quick look through, there were a couple that are worh a
"heads up": there is old earth theory pushed an later in the book there is a quick blub about creation theories defined as myths.
In the religion section Christians, in part are defined as people who believe God wants them to be good. That was just a quick peek- though most of the info seemed pretty centric.
