The New York Public Library Student's Desk Reference
This adaptation of The New York Public Library Desk Reference constitutes for children what its parent volume is for adults: the ultimate source of commonly needed information. Want to know the size of the moon, or the life span of an elephant? How to start a rock collection, or write a term paper? When the Emancipation Proclamation took effect, or man first orbited Earth? All the answers lie within, as well as much more on science and math, arts and literature, language, history, sports, health, etc. Ideal for homework help or just to satisfy a developing mind.
