WORLD BOOK FOR STUDENTS
The World Book now calls its Reference Center World Book Student and has added a timeline builder, a biography center, and hundreds of new videos and pictures to support student research projects. Students also now have the ability to establish their own research accounts. World Book Student still includes all the articles from the print versions of the World Book Encyclopedia, plus thousands of additional articles, learning resources, and research tools such as trivia quizzes, science projects, cyber camp, and special features such as African American Journey, Climates Around the World, and an Atlas with hundreds of maps.
You can subscribe for as little as US$49.95 per year. What a deal!
Disclosure: I grew up with and learned to read from the print World Book and it holds a special appeal for me.
