This reference work aims to expand a child's vocabulary and knowledge, by visualizing objects. Over 700 objects of the modern world are illustrated and named. From animal kingdom to weapons, this is a learning tool that is entertaining as well as educational. Extensive research has been carried out to identify the essential objects in the everyday world that children between 8 and 12 encounter, whether at home, at school, or in games, television, etc. Computer graphics are used to illustrate the book: new technology has made it possible to produce clear, photo-like images that can show details which photographs cannot render.
