Book summary

What fits in your pocket yet holds the continents, the oceans, and all the stars? The Pocket Science Encyclopedia! This small but sturdy volume is organized into four main themed categories: "Chemistry and Physics," "Earth and Weather," "Space," and "The Living World." In these categories are more than 200 two-page entries on more detailed subjects, like "Explosive Volcanoes," "Life Cycle of a Star," and "Simple Invertebrates." To supplement the text information, more than 1,000 photos, illustrations, and diagrams help readers understand even the most difficult scientific topic. This is the book to take on a field trip, vacation, or visit to the boring relatives' house, because it's filled with great tidbits and stuff to investigate. For a bigger, stay-at-home version of this fact-packed little encyclopedia, The DK Science Encyclopedia can't be beat. (Ages 9 to 12) --Therese Littleton [via]
