This will provide a more visually appealing presentation of information for visual learners than the general multivolume set of encyclopedias. This is a great beginning resource for early researchers.Timeliness and permanence: With its most recent publication being in 2006, this reference may be considered a little dated, however, with its information being so general and on a topic such at natural science, it would not need to be updated as often at the general multivolume encyclopedias would be. Accessibility/Diversity: Appeals to young students in grade K-3. With dramatic artwork, a visual design that organizes the information into clear sections is a perfect guide to the natural world for today’s visual learners, beginning readers, struggling readers. With 128 pages, it is small enough for the younger students to use and enjoy.Cost: At 15.99, the cost is reasonable and would be a wonderful tool for content research projects and teaching information skills. This can continue to be a content resource for many years before it will need updating.
