    This volume covers the history of the world, from the beginning through modern times (into the 21st century). While not an in-depth view, it covers all time periods and shows readers what was happening in all regions of the world. All events of note are included with brief write-ups and lots of photographs, paintings, and pictures. The text is very readable, and every page is eye-catching with full color examples of tools, weapons, historical sites, and more. Timelines are included showing events from around the world happening at concurrent times. Republished by My Father's World (with permission of DK), the first two chapters, Introduction to Human History (570MYA-40,000) and Early People (40,000-5000BC), have been removed to make it more Christian-friendly. Following chapters cover the First Civilizations (5000-1200BC), Traders and Warriors (1200-500BC), Growth of Empires (500BC-AD1), Decline of the Ancient World (1-400), Religious Worlds (400-800), New Nations (800-1000), Monks and Invaders (1000-1200), Conquest and Plague (1200-1400), Expansion of Knowledge (1400-1500), Great Rulers (1500-1600), Commerce and Colonies (1600-1700), Age of Inquiry (1700-1750), Age of Revolution (1750-1800), Independence and Industry (1800-1850), Rise of Nationalism (1850-1900), World Goes to War (1900-1919), Peace and War (1919-1946), and One World (1946-2000s). Christianity is introduced with major events like the Exodus, Christ's crucifixion and such being discussed (although usually introduced as stories with no historical evidence). Overall, this is a good look at the entire world as it has grown and changed from ancient times until today, full of fascinating facts waiting to be discovered. ~ Megan

    How big is the Sahara? Which products are in greatest demand around the world? You just might need a good reference book to come up with the answers to these and many other questions.  First Earth Encyclopedia by DK has the same visual appeal as other DK products and is packed full of information and interesting facts for children from a secular perspective.  Every page is laid out in a scrapbooking style with photographs and accompanying text.  An extension question is printed at the bottom of each even-numbered page and the answer can be found at the bottom of the odd numbered pages (upside down).  “Turn and Learn” icons tell you where to look for additional information within the book, and ‘Hands on’ activities show you how you can try some things for yourself.  You will find these scattered through the color-coded pages of the book.  Children will find information on the world’s physical geography, our living world (ecosystems), human geography, and maps.  A reference section at the back of the book includes a map of the world, photos of unique locations on earth, a view of the earth at night, a quiz, glossary and more.  I’m always a fan of DK books even for non-reading, younger children. This hardcover, 136-page book is no exception. ~ Donna

    As I oooo and aaahhh my way through the beautiful pictures in this book, I am reminded of what an amazing place the earth is. It is diverse, rugged, and awesome. DK always does an amazing job with photographic presentation, and this book is no exception. Take a visual journey from the beginning of the solar system, to rocks and minerals, water formation, weather and climate, life on earth, the human world, and mapping the world. Every photo, illustration, and map is accompanied by a small amount of information. A country factfile summarizes all of the countries of the world by offering facts about each – area, population, capital, currency, official language, life expectancy, and information about an accompanying picture. A glossary is included for words that might be unfamiliar. I am always curious about new destinations and intrigued by photos from different areas (I might want to go there someday), but not all of the photos provide that information. Another thing to keep in mind is that this is from a secular perspective; theories as fact abound. 300+pgs, p/b. ~ Donna

    Learn about the countries of the world and the people who live there with this DK book. Divided into six continental sections, each begins with a map of the whole continent followed by descriptions of the people who live there. Each country (or group of countries) then has an individual map showing cities, towns and prominent geographical features. Country pages then go into detail about life in those countries. Colorful maps and photos are beautiful with plenty of action shots, people, and scenery. The text is engaging and interesting in short blurbs. A reference section contains information on world religions or political systems. A glossary and index are included. This is a great addition to your personal library as well as a resource for geography and world cultures. Revised and updated in 2010. 304 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    Dinosaurs are quite a fascination for the young – big, scary reptiles that roamed the earth and are now gone. This book by DK is a great resource for helping children visualize what they might have looked like and how they lived. Divided into types of dinosaurs, the book is easy to use – invertebrates, early vertebrates, dinosaurs and birds, and mammals. The book begins by explaining prehistoric life – how life began, evolution, timeline of life, fossils, and fossil hunting all from a secular perspective. Join paleontologists as they excavate fossils and bones to learn more about the size and shapes of these prehistoric creatures. Colorful photos, illustrations, and charts, take you on a visual journey that will engage young learners and help them understand more about dinosaurs! 304 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    Learn about Shakespeare’s world in an accessible, kid-friendly way! In classic DK fashion, this book’s pages are a perfect blend of visual information: both pictures and text. Each spread covers a topic with one or two large color photographs, a paragraph or two, then the margins are filled in with smaller, relevant images and captions. This visual approach makes for a wonderful way to learn about Shakespeare’s world. Learn about his upbringing, the royalty of that time, daily life and culture of that era, how his plays were written and performed, the different types of plays he wrote (such as comedy and tragedy), his legacy, and so much more! I absolutely loved this type of book as a child because it takes a dry subject and gives the reader a detailed, historically accurate view. Complete with a timeline, reference of Shakespeare’s characters and a glossary. Perfect as a supplement to literature or history, or as a stand-alone book that is fun to read. 72 softcover pages. – Laura
