Publisher Review

"This is a highly recommendable gift for children and an essential for KS2 classrooms or primary school libraries. While it may initially appeal as a fact-finder or a reference book, it will quickly charm its readers into enjoying the quest for knowledge as a pleasure pursuit and will become a popular choice for browsing, flicking through, dipping into and pondering deeply at knowns and known unknowns alike." -- Books for Topics "An enticing window onto a wonderful world of ideas to explore ... I didn't know how much I had missed browsing through a good encyclopedia until I picked up this one." -- Mike Davies, Teach Primary "Knowledge is organised through patterns and connections, and brains love to connect things. This new encyclopedia helps to make these connections which in turn leads to more questions opening more pathways, more curiosity and more learning." * The West Australian * "What on Earth has reported 'astonishing demand' for its first collaboration with Britannica Inc, the Britannica All New Children's Encyclopedia: What We Know & What We Don't. The book sold 6,000 copies in its first week on sale. In the US, forward orders ahead of publication on 13 October are more than 21,000 copies. In Australia, where What on Earth's titles are distributed by Walker Books, there are orders for 5,000 copies. Reprints are in hand: 20,000 copies for the US and 15,000 for the UK." * BookBrunch * "This is a highly recommendable gift for children and an essential for KS2 classrooms or primary school libraries. While it may initially appeal as a fact-finder or a reference book, it will quickly charm its readers into enjoying the quest for knowledge as a pleasure pursuit and will become a popular choice for browsing, flicking through, dipping into and pondering deeply at knowns and known unknowns alike." * Books for Topics * "Clearly labelled diagrams adorn every page which is split up into short bursts of knowledge organised in an intriguing not overwhelming fashion. One of my favourite features is towards the end of each chapter. The 'Ask the Experts!' followed by the quiz." * Mister Bodd blog * "The Britannica All New Children's Encyclopedia is divided into eight chapters that take readers on a journey." * iNews * "The thinking parent's children's Christmas present for 2020." * The School Reading List * "This book helps educate children to be critical, confident, and independent-minded thinkers." * The School Reading List * "Simply bursting with facts and fun, the Britannica All New Children's Encyclopedia offers home learning for all the family to enjoy." * Lancaster Guardian * "This is a triumph of nonfiction publishing for children which sets a gold standard." -- Nikki Gamble, Director, Just Imagine * Exploring Children's Literature * "The book is a cornucopia of the wonderous. It's authoritative and appealing in its text, illustration and design." -- Nikki Gamble, Director, Just Imagine * Exploring Children's Literature * "The Britannica All New Children's Encyclopedia brings a world of knowledge right to your fingertips." * National Geographic Kids Magazine * "A cartwheeling compendium of interconnected facts, questions, answers and not-sures, taking the reader from the Big Bang to the future of thought-controlled body parts, and bursting with colourful visuals and snappy paragraphs." * The Telegraph * "A fantastic new voyage through world history." * The Telegraph * "The pages are visually stunning with incredible illustrations, diagrams and maps ...This is a superb text that is deserving of its place in any primary school classroom and library, as well as on home bookshelves for pleasure and fun. Well designed and pleasing to hold and read, it is an incredible book. Up-to-date information will aid research and knowledge and enable children to quench their thirst for facts and knowledge." * ReadingZone.com * "A hefty hard back book featuring more than 400 pages of information, pictures, graphics, biographies, vocabulary and so much more. The book feels luxurious and the thick paper makes this a pleasure to dip in and out of or read cover to cover." * ReadingZone.com * "A book of wonders and a wonderful book!" -- Anthony Horowitz "An amazing, colourful collection of fantastic facts." -- Jacqueline Wilson
