Gr 3 Up—The 2017 edition opens with a particular emphasis: a foreword by Buzz Aldrin, an interview with astronaut Chris Hadfield, and the first section focusing on space. The other sections cover topics such as humans, toys, architecture, science, and sports. Each page consists of numerous crisp full-color photos to accompany the remarkable facts. Some pages have "Did You Know" fact boxes. A vertical page spread, "Factographic," features eye-catching graphics and statistics. Teachers can use this volume during lessons to add interest on topics such as 3-D printing or Shakespeare, while students of all ages will be drawn to this offering to read alone or with friends. Parents and guardians will be tempted to peruse as well. VERDICT An engaging addition to most collections.—Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District, Greensburg, PA
