School Library Journal - 04/01/2014 Gr 2–5—Though uneven in consistency, at their best, these collections of statistical information demonstrate the real value of well-designed infographics. Each volume contains a series of neatly designed full-page or full-spread graphic images with simply phrased explanatory captions. Many of the images are just arbitrarily sized silhouette illustrations with labels or even conventional pie and bar charts. Often enough, though, some imagination has been used to present information both numerically and visually at once—from a chart combining cloud types, shapes, and altitudes in Weather Infographics to silhouettes of various land animals placed on a speed line and a world map with selected (and labeled) country flags that are sized to reflect populations. Oxlade does not cite his sources, but leads to print and web resources are provided at the end. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
