Three new reference books stand ready to be mined by young researchers. The Concise Children's Encyclopedia provides a rich core of information on such topics as continents, religions, science and technology, sports and the arts. The paper-over-board volume's compact size, bold graphics and brief chunks of text lend appeal. Sidebars offer additional information as well as topics for further research. (Sept.)
