In Focus by Libby Walden

In Focus is a classic encyclopaedia with a modern design twist; each of the 10 chapters is brought to life by a different illustrator and includes double-page spreads that open up to reveal cross sections, cutaways and close-ups so the reader gains a different perspective and greater appreciation of their world.

From buildings to blue whales, from toilets to space ships there’s a diverse but fascinating amount of introductory material for the curious child, the budding scientist or engineer in the family. This is a book that will appeal to a wide age range – ages 5 and up to 10 and possibly beyond, as curiosity has no age limit. I loved this layout and was especially taken with the sections on everyday objects, and fruit and vegetables.

Highly recommended and definitely one to share with the whole family.
