The Discovery Science Encyclopedia, from the publishers of The World Book Encyclopedia, is a starter science look-up source in nine hard-cover volumes. The set is designed to be used by newly independent readers or reluctant readers ages 8-10 whose first language is English and by students ages 10-13 learning English (English as a Second Language/English as a Foreign Language—ESL/EFL). Young readers can learn about topics in physical sciences (astronomy, chemistry, geology, oceanography, physics), life sciences (biology, botany, zoology), and social sciences (relationships between and among people).
In the set are two volumes about animals, two volumes about people, and one volume each about planet Earth, matter and energy, plants, space, and technology. Inside these volumes the entries are in A-Z order. Lots of photos and diagrams and other types of illustrations help readers understand all the STEM topics! This edition includes updates about the New Horizons space probe to Pluto.
