Welcome to the Britannica Discovery Library
Each of the twelve volumes in the Britannica Discovery Library is designed to encourage children to learn about a key aspect of their world while having fun at the same time. The Britannica Discovery Library is a resource to be used over several years, as children progress from being read to by others to reading independently.
Each Britannica Discovery Library volume includes several valuable extras beyond the fully illustrated text:
“Question boxes” scattered throughout each volume provide an important interactive component that engages children in
making observations, thinking about themselves, and, in many cases, using creative imagination within the context of a particular topic.
A Glossary, which gives both the pronunciation and definition of difficult or unfamiliar words, is provided at the back of each volume.
An Activities page at the back of each of the first eleven volumes offers fun activities related to the book’s topic. Each activity is meant to increase children’s skills and understanding of the world at the same time. The twelfth volume is composed entirely of fun activities, puzzles, riddles, and more.

A Parent/Teacher page in each volume provides tips on how to work with the given activities as well as offering a wealth of information on child
development and ways to enhance children’s learning—and S capacity to learn. An early childhood education specialist guided
the development of all these pages as well as the activities throughout the set.
Finally, an important aim of the Britannica Discovery Library is to give the adult a chance to share a rewarding experience
with children as they grow and learn!

I cried when I wanted something to eat
and laughed when someone tickled my feet.
I cannot remember my very first days, but I got attention in so many ways.
When I was first born I was very small. I couldn’t really do much at all.
