SO, back in July this fabulous deal appeared. I wrote about it and that very same day found myself in WHSmith buying a copy for my youngest son for Christmas.
It is a STUNNING book; my mum and I spent a good hour flicking through it when we got home.
The illustrations are fabulous and most things, if not all, are cross referenced within the Encyclopedia itself so you can beetle off and learn more about whatever it was you were looking at, AND there are links to relevant internet sites that have been tested and are safe and reliable.
The language is pitched perfectly too - it's written in nice, simple terms that kids will easily understand without it being babyish or dumbed down; it really is very well done.
If you have a little one who asks lots of questions, or you want to develop a young enquiring mind then I really can't recommend this Children's Illustrated Internet Linked Encyclopedia enough.
It's currently on sale at Smiths for £3.50, instead of £19.98 and you can arrange for free collection from your nearest store too.
