CD Encyclopedia

The Big Picture

SuperKids' review teams looked at three traditional CD Encyclopedia packages, plus one for younger children, for this comparison. All of them were rated as good or better, although for differing reasons.

We also took a look at another piece of software that our reviewers thought might be mistakenly purchased by some parents as an encyclopledia, My First Encyclopedia, from Knowledge Adventure. This is NOT a traditional "use it to look something up" encyclopedia -- it is more like a fun, multimedia textbook.

Reviews of the 1997 editions of Compton's, Encarta, and Grolier's are available at: http://www.superkids.com/aweb/pages/reviews/encyclo2/sw_sum1.shtml
