A charming first encyclopedia bursting with facts, perfect for little learners ages 4–7 who want to know everything.
Learning takes on a storybook feel through "Once upon a time" stories and graphic novel elements in My Encyclopedia of Very Important Things. Covering a world of discovery, it explores animals, people, planets, and, very importantly, you!
Children can learn how animals "talk," how many people live on our planet, how to say "hello" and "goodbye" in different languages, and so much more. They can meet vegetarian dinosaurs, fluffy pets, and big blue whales; explore the past with cavemen, Vikings, and pharaohs; follow the life of a plant, from seed to flower; and discover what makes up a cloud.
Blending adorable, simple illustrations with rich photography and lively text, and formatted with a ribbon bookmark, My Encyclopedia of Very Important Things is a very important book for very important people, the perfect first reference book for young readers.
