As with most DK titles, this is an attractive, if cluttered, mix of maps, drawings, and small photos. The index, glossary, map key, and information about maps make My First Atlas slightly better than Rand McNally's First Atlas. Unfortunately, the DK title is marred by sloppy editing. For instance, readers are asked to locate the Congo River on the map of Africa, but the Congo River is not labeled. This title would serve for browsing, but the minimal amount of information and lack of a locator index make it inappropriate for reference use with even young children.
