Each section features a full page gorgeous photograph and facing page of text. A small number of vocabulary words are introduced at the beginning of the text and highlighted in the body. Unfortunately the highlighting does not stand out well from the text. There is a list of books and web sites for further information. Both are very age appropriate, current and recognized authorities such as National Geographic. A simple index is also present. The sources of all photographs are credited..
