            Our world is an amazing place. It's full of rivers, mountains, animals, and too many other amazing places to count. But that's not all. There's also families, friends, music, technology, language, games, and all other things that make life wonderful. This exciting children's book... is a celebration of our world and what it's like to live in it. Unlike an atlas, this encyclopedia of discovery will entertain, educate, and inspire readers to wonder about the world around them. On one page they'll read about their body and brain, on another they'll learn about languages, sporting events, or the environment, and on others, they can marvel at wonders of the Earth such as fiery volcanoes, sprawling cities, or a place called The Chocolate Hills . My Very Important World allows readers to delight in discovering where the coldest place on Earth is, how many languages there are, why they sometimes feel scared, and much, much more. There's a big wide world out there - so turn the pages to explore it.

Using 3D computer illustrations to show cross-section views and a level of detail you can't find in other books, this... children's ocean encyclopedia takes you on a world tour of the waters that cover 70 percent of our planet. Including sharks, jellyfish, turtles, dolphins, octopuses, penguins, and seahorses, you will see the fish, invertebrates, and other animals that call the ocean home and learn how their anatomy and behaviour is adapted to deal with a watery habitat. Discover the geography, geology, and ecology that lies beneath the waves - from the dramatic landscapes of the deepest trench and the longest mountain range on Earth, to coastal coral reefs and kelp forests teeming with life. Find out, too, about the science behind the seas. How do islands form? What are tsunamis? How can you help with marine conservation? Beautifully illustrated and packed full of facts, Knowledge Encyclopedia Ocean is the ultimate reference book for children curious about our planet's watery world.
