I read all of the online encyclopedias available via NCLive, and this article was the most comprehensive, easy to read and illustrated. I am a visual learner, so I appreciate the photographs. Many of the online articles were completely lacking of photographs; this is disappointing because many children (and adults) find browsing an encyclopedia volume, mostly looking at the pictures is fun and educational.

The other helpful feature of this article is the bibliography at the end of the article, which can be used to find other resources and information.
