Children’s Encyclopedias

Since my earlier post was on the future of books and building a library, what about looking to the past?

Children’s encyclopedias are brilliant for giving a sense of the period in which they were published, craft activities, riddles, photos to sketch and simple explanations when you’re venturing into a new subject area. I have a set picked up for $10 that has Enid Blyton as a co-editor.
