Computer Shopper, December 1997

"If you buy only one piece of children's software this season, make it The Eyewitness Children's Encyclpedia from DK Multimedia. These might seem strong words, but for a combination of fun and learning, this refeence CD-ROM will entrhall young children like nothing else we've seen. It combines a gadget-filled interface with an incredibly thorough reference work in a way that speaks perfectly to the absorbent-sponge brain of the 7-to-12 year old.

"The disc's navigator interface buzzes, burps, and giggles while it offers exciting tools for your child's exploration. Straight keyword searches are available, but flights of fantasy are encouraged by the navigator's virtual environments - a variety of 3-D landscapes through which the child can move. Objects in the environment offer questions, and click on the Find Out button brings you to that subject in the encyclopedia. For instance, while journeying through a garden, we saw a sunflower. When we clicked on the sunflower it caused the naivator to ask, 'What form of symmetry does a sunflower have?' The search for the answer led us into a study of geometry. The richness of this interface must be experienced to be believed.

"The customizable interface includes quizzes, jokes, sticky notes that make it easy to return to a subject, and the ability to read aloud the disc's text - a big help for beginning readers. Users with Internet access can get online via the Children's Encyclopedia's Active Learning Center to further their knowledge quests. Even without the Internet, there's something here for everyone - Nature, History, Geography, Science, Culture, and a World Atlas. Your children will turn to The Eyewitness Children's Encyclopedia for both homework and entertainment."
