The wonders of our world are captured in this new edition of WORLD BOOK. See how a killer tornado is formed. Witness the notorious Berlin Wall coming down. Watch cheetahs running seventy miles an hour. See how ancient Egyptians made mummies. The journey begins here.
The Just Looking area is where you'll find "the good stuff": Pictures of people and places that interest you - from Rock Stars to Explorers, Skyscrapers to Castles - all from the WORLD BOOK Media Collection.
You can experience true multimedia with coordinated sights and sounds from World Book's music and photo collections. Copenhagen provides an ideal backdrop for the Danish national anthem, as a farmer tending rice fields in Vietnam does for a Vietnamese folk dance.
Travel the World from your Armchair:
The next best thing to being half way across the world is to travel through the magic of Webcams. We have put together a collection of kid-safe Web cameras from around the world. From the tranquil beauty of mountain panoramas to the bustle of urban jungles, watch life on our planet unfold before your eyes.
Every single article from the 22-volume print edition of the WORLD BOOK Encyclopedia is included, plus eighty years of archived articles in WORLD BOOK's online resources.
