One photograph can say more than a thousand words. My Big Book of Everything takes young children on a thrilling visual journey, revealing much more than first words. Come for a magic carpet ride -- out of your home, into the countryside, and far beyond. Run through a field of colorful wildflowers; drive a giant dump truck around a bumpy building site; swim with a school of dazzling fish deep under the sea; mingle with a herd of striped zebras grazing on the hot African plains; hold on tight as you ride the waves in a sturdy fishing trawler. One photograph can say more than a thousand words. Packed with over 800 photographs, My Big Book of Everything reveals countless sights, colors, and ideas. It takes young children on a thrilling visual journey, revealing much more than first words.

PreSchool-Grade 1. Yet another inventory of items in bright, full-color photos on a crisp white background. This time around, the scope is "Everything" ranging from "Around the world" to "Around the home," with a total of 33 individual categories. While the photographs are clear and handsome, concepts are blurred for the sake of making sure "everything" is included. For example, readers will find not only tools "In the workshop" but also a spider, bulbs for planting, and a bicycle. Priddy's Baby's Book of the Body (1996) and Baby's Book of Nature (1995, both DK) share this problem as well as many identical models (same adorable, multiethnic children; same goat; same seaweed). An index is provided for readers who need a quick reference to "clothespins," "field of sunflowers," "zucchini," etc. This is an attractive, albeit sometimes cluttered addition, and if you think you've seen it before, you probably have.

Ages 3^-6. True to its generic title, this is an attempt to put a whole library into one large-size book. That is certainly inexpensive, but it doesn't work for the young child who needs to focus on one big clear picture or word or concept at a time. More than 800 small, beautiful color photos are organized into 33 double-page themes--toys, shapes, jobs, the body, counting, colors, etc.--with a word or a phrase under each picture. Children will learn vocabulary from the pages on foods and clothes, and they can play interactive games with subjects such as noises and counting. However, once the book gets to city scenes (including market and marina) and aerial views of igloo and pyramid, the communication is with a much older reader. In fact, this may get the most use with adults and grade-schoolers who are learning English as a second language. Hazel Rochman
