Your World is designed to help today's youngsters find the answers to their many questions, either by themselves, or with the help of a parent or educator. With its thematic arrangement, Your World is fun and intuitive to use. Information is presented in context, a vital aid to comprehension for this age group. Many join-in activities and simple experiments - such as making a miniature erupting volcano or creating an imitation aquarium - invite participation. From Prehistoric Life to People and Places, and from Transportation to The Universe, the book covers all the subjects that spark a child's curiosity. Simple captions, step-by-step illustrations, clear text, and an easy-to-read index make this a book for children to grow with, and one that will prepare them for the next level of reference and nonfiction books.
