Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–This updated, colorful atlas provides snapshots of the world. Globes, maps, and landforms are explained through clear language and bright illustrations in the opening pages. Following this general overview, the information becomes more specific with details about each continent. Each oversize spread contains a map and photographs and pictures of people, animals, places, and things particular to the region, described in detailed captions. There is also a short, chatty paragraph, sometimes in first person, that will give readers a sense of what the children in the photographs think about what they are doing or their country. At the bottom of each page are small pictures of landmarks, natural and man-made, of the area. This updated version includes details about the United States and Canada not found in the 1994 edition. While the factual information is limited, the illustrations will introduce readers to the variety of cultures and landscapes around the world.–Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA

This is a great introductory atlas! I like how it starts with a minimalist representation of the Earth- just continents and oceans and builds from there: land features, political boundaries, etc.. The graphics are very clear and simple while being accurate.

My daughter found this easy to use for her first grade Social Studies. Very clear and easy to read labels. Basic explanations- not too complicated but informative. My daughter is able to refer to this book on her own with minimal assistance. I highly recommend for first and second graders studying beginning geography and social studies.

I purchased this atlas for my precocious four-year-old granddaughter who is very curious about the world and asking "where is that?" questions. It is simple enough for a young beginner, yet contains enough interesting material to give her food for thought for some time. A real winner!

This atlas is an outstanding means for introducing young children to one of the many important tools necessary for mastering geography. The continents are clearly and boldly shown. Information is precise and appropriate.

This atlas is perfect for my 3-year-old son. We pull it out regularly to show where something/someone is. It has simple, uncluttered maps with a few details that we can choose to read or not.

I purchased this atlas as a birthday gift for my three year-old daughter, as she's recently taken an interest in maps. The graphics are great, and the information appears to all be correct. But it's a bit skimpy, and it doesn't include many pictures of exotic fruits and animals. My daughter's shown little interest in it, preferring instead an atlas I received as a kid back in the early 1980s.

This is my child's first world atlas. There is a bit more focus on the US and Canada, but it also highlights the other continents. It's not an atlas that outlines countries geographically. This atlas outlines the continents and some main landmarks. I think it's a good atlas that helps a 4 or 5 year old explore our world.
