Customer Review of Usborne Encyclopedia:
“I. Love. This. Book. Oh, and so does my 8-year-old! When he asked me why I always say the Vikings were bad guys, we went right to it, read the relevant pages, and found a game (via the Internet links) in which he could create his own Viking raid. After we sailed to Greenland, rid a monastery of about 36 monks, burned it down, and sailed back, he understood exactly why the Vikings were not seen as the nicest people. 🙂 And he wanted to play the game again, so that he could pick a different route and surprise even more monks the next time!”

This is a beautiful encyclopedia that makes learning about history not so dull. You’ll learn about the way people of different time periods and locations throughout history lived. Easily broken down by era in the back of the book to find just what you’re looking for. This would be a priceless resource for homeschool and research projects.
