Pictorial General Knowledge (Updated Edition) Book 8 by S. K. Gupta, Anubhuti Gangal
We are happy to be able to offer this beautifully illustrated edition of part-8 of our Pictorial General Knowledge Series. The authors are aware of the fact that this is an age of globalisation wherefore the horizon of knowledge has spread beyond the boundaries of one’s country. The exposure that young children have in this high tech era through T.V. and early interaction with a wide strata of society in schools and other forums including travelling has made them inquisitive and whetted their appetite for more and more knowledge about their surroundings, environment, society, plants and animals, sports, transport and scores of other things. They have multitude of questions to ask. This book is an attempt to fulfil this need.
The information on a wide variety of topics is provided through ‘informative’ as well as ‘interactive’ approach. Every chapter and the chapter based exercises are arranged in such a way that young learners learn the subject matter by ‘Learning through doing approach’ rather than merely providing the information to be mugged up and then spurted in a traditional questionanswer style.
The categorisation of chapters is theme based like the World of animals and plants; Language, Literature and Entertainment; Science and Technology; I Love My India; Around the World; Sportalk; Mental Ability and ‘A–Z Encyclopedia’, etc. The sections on ‘Some Interesting Facts’ and ‘Facts from History’ have been included to provide a wealth of useful information on a variety of topics.
‘Test Paper’ is introduced at the end which will help the students to assess their knowlede and skills. ‘G.K. Update’ enumerating important events during the current year with current quiz form a special feature of the book.
