General Reference

These are the kind of books that will help you win at Trivial Pursuit (or help those of us with A.D.D. learn anything at all). Everything from math to history to crime detection is represented here, and between the diversity of subjects and books with pictures you should be able to occupy yourself and your kids for many long hours.

Review by C. Hollis Crossman
C. Hollis Crossman used to be a child. Now he is a husband and father, teaches adult Sunday school in his Presbyterian congregation, and likes weird stuff. He might be a mythical creature, but he's definitely not a centaur.Read more of his reviews here.
