Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
This is a nice atlas. Among its uncluttered information-packed pages, readers will find maps, pictures of stamps, flags, coins, alphabets, people, monuments, and geographical features. The maps are arranged by continent, with each featured country or region having its own two-page spread. For browsers, there's much to look at here besides maps and statistical tables. For information seekers, there's updated, clearly-written text and informative captions for both maps and illustrations. Handier still, is an index that lists not only page numbers for each entry, but also map coordinates where appropriate. For students of the world, both young and old, traveled and homebody, this atlas is a real find! 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
This title is marred by errors both in the index and the text. These are especially apparent when the atlas addresses complex and controversial issues in a simplistic way-poverty and Third World aid, for instance. There is just too little detail and information in the maps and index, and too much space is given over to photos (some very beautiful), postage stamps, and fact boxes.
Booknews
The Library of Congress' summary reads, "Text, maps, and activities introduce regions and countries of the world". Very colorful, but most illustrations are not cartographic. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
