Customer Reviews:

What A Fun Book!

By Dorrie Wheeler - October 8, 2006

If you are someone who considers yourself an information junky then "Pick Me Up," is a book you will enjoy. It would be easy to say this is a book just for kids or teens, but Pick Me Up is a book that parents and educators will find useful and interesting as well. The full color book is so interesting and such eye candy that teens will want to close the lid on their laptops to check out this book.

The book is broken into 8 different subject areas-

Science, Technology & Space

Society, Places and Beliefs

History

The Natural World

People Who Made The World

Arts, Entertainment and media

You and your body

Planet Earth

Each content rich section includes a ton of useful information. From the planets to the country with the largest democracy, there is so much good stuff in this book, one cannot afford to let this gem pass them by. It seems as if no stone is left unturned. More than... read more

Hard to Put Down!

By Wantz Upon A Time Reviews - November 1, 2006

In the spirit of fun learning, PICK ME UP treats kids to a fun look at the world. A reader can look up one subject, read about it, then flip to a related topic by following a bold-faced word followed by a page number. General knowledge groups are color-coded to help users locate areas of interest.

For a better idea of how this book works, I'll provide an example (page numbers subject to change).

I want to read about marine life. Under "Where to find stuff" at the beginning, I find "Oceans" under "The Natural World," color-coded light blue. I go to page 202, as listed in the finder. I read an article about how humans affect the ocean. In the article, I see "dolphins 130" in bold. I love dolphins, so I turn to that page. This brings me to "Which Animal is Man's Best Friend?" Cats, dogs, horses, elephants, rats and dolphins each get their say. I see that dogs help find "avalanche 074" victims, so now I'm curious about avalanches. I learn about Mount Kilimanjaro,... read more

By TeensReadToo "Eat. Drink. Read. Be Merrier." - October 19, 2006

Gone are the days of boring, cumbersome, and, ultimately, not all that helpful encyclopedias. The new king of interesting resource information is here, and it's called PICK ME UP. Everything you've ever wanted to know about just about anything (and maybe even some stuff you didn't even know you wanted to know!) is included in the 300+ pages of this book.

Although there are eight actual categories included in PICK ME UP--Science, Technolgy, and Space; Society, Places, and Beliefs; History; The Natural World; People Who Made the World; Arts, Entertainment, and Media; You and Your Body; Planet Earth--this book is actually hard to categorize. There are numerous ways to find the information you need, from browsing one of the aforementioned categories, to cross-referencing individual pages, to using the index, or simply picking a page at random to begin your quest for knowledge.

For instance, did you know that Albert Einstein's brain was actually different in width... read more
