REVIEWS

Praise for The Kingfisher Geography Encyclopedia

Library Media Connection
The book is well-organized and comprehensive, but not overwhelming for young readers. . . . Colored pictures and maps with major cities and bodies of water are balanced with the text. . . . Teachers would find this a good resource to use alongside a textbook.
