An Encyclopedia for Children

Post by: Tathagata Behera

An encyclopedia is a reference book which provides a host of information on a multitude of subjects. It is a compendium which holds together a summary of information about many subjects or a particular branch of knowledge. The entries are divided by their names or categories for easy usage by the reader. As said earlier, the encyclopedias might be on a variety of subjects or a single subject, similarly, encyclopedias might cater to any group of people or everyone in general. In encyclopedias, the entries tend to be longer and more descriptive as compared to dictionary entries.

The first encyclopedia was compiled by Pliny the Elder around 2000 years back, in AD 77. The modern world got their first taste of encyclopedias around the 17th century when they began to be compiled out of dictionaries. Earlier, the encyclopedias used to be a single volume of work while in recent times, the huge volumes have been broken down to contain the information in a number of volumes.

In ‘First Children's Encyclopedia’, the target audience is children as the name suggests. This encyclopedia has been compiled by the likes of Penny Smith, Lorrie Mack, Caroline Stamps, and Lee Wilson, all of them stalwarts in their field. From the prehistoric world to space travel, from the human body to the smallest and largest of organisms that inhabit the earth, from the evolution of life to the most futuristic of technologies, from the Aztec to the Egyptian civilization, everything has been compiled and presented for young readers to learn. The encyclopedia contains illustrations as well for the mind to remain interested.
