This resource, revised and updated from the 2004 edition, introduces readers to the diversity of life on earth. Information is divided into three sections. The opening, “A Planet Apart,” discusses origins of life and formation of the planet, including topics such as DNA, evolution, and energy. “The Living World” has sections on the five “kingdoms of life” (bacteria, microscopic life, fungi, plants, and animals) and ecology. “Wildlife Habitats” provides readers with information about the various environments and biomes on planet earth. Information is generally contained in two-page spreads, though articles on the biomes are slightly longer. Numerous color photographs, maps, and images are found within each spread, with captions that add to the content. It is these illustrative materials that are the strength of this encyclopedia. Additionally, the superb layout and design and graduated font size (similar to the DK Eyewitness series) will draw readers in. Though there is an index, readers will likely utilize the table of contents to figure out which pages contain the information they are seeking. This reference work is an excellent introduction to numerous topics in science throughout elementary- and middle-school curriculums. Public and school libraries serving these students, or high schools wanting an introductory resource for students, will be well served by this purchase. The price of this resource makes it possible to consider multiple copies, as many readers will want to check it out after browsing. Grades 4-9. --Shauna Yusko
