    This Children¿s Atlas of God¿s World is precisely what its title

    This Children’s Atlas of God’s World is precisely what its title indicates. It is written for children in the early grades, though older elementary children can also benefit from using it. It is not intended to be a comprehensive atlas of the entire World and all the countries and cultures therein. It is geared toward the young student. It should also be noted that the emphasis is on God’s World.  Those who do not wish to utilize an atlas with this emphasis should avoid it. Personally, I find it delightful and one I can recommend to parents and schools.

    The plethora of information presented on each two-page spread is varied and comprehensive, especially for a book intended for young students. Information on an area’s Christian history and traditions, biomes, World Heritage sites, cultures, landmarks.  The countries that are  featured have pictures of  the people and their native costumes, animals of the locale, and information on population, monetary system, customs, holidays, and foods of the area.

    I found the book to be inviting, bright, informative, engaging, interesting. And while it is definitely a children’s atlas, adults are sure to find it will capture their interest a provide information and insight that they missed somewhere along the way as they pursued their own education.

    My only concern is a prominent place is given in the book to the World Heritage Sites (UNESCO). While UNESCO has surely in some instances done good for mankind, there is a portion of its agenda and programming that most Christians are not comfortable with promoting. World Heritage Sites link

    This colorful atlas takes kids on a photographic journey through

    This colorful atlas takes kids on a photographic journey through the world!  As each continent is introduced, there is a side bar running the length of the page listings it's countries. At the bottom of the sidebar, a globe is shown where the continent if emboldened in red so as to highlight it from the other continents. Select countries are then featured on the pages following each continent. In addition to the land formations and blown up maps, information on the food, people, history, culture, and plant and animal life is also given. I like this approach to geography best, as it give a well rounded view on the places that a child might not know a lot about. 




    Kids will read about various sites such as St. Peter's Basilica in Rome (a late Renaissance church) , Niagara Falls in New York, Machu Picchu (an Inca site in Peru), and Mount Kosciuszko (the highest mountain Australia.) 




    Animal life: Sun Bears (the world's smallest bear), Rhinoceros hornbill birds (a great photo of this bird is included and its beaks DOES look like a rhino's!) Kiwi bird (New Zealand's flightless bird), Dugongs (an herbivorous marine animal.)




    Plant Life: Venus Flytraps, Tulips (associated with Holland but originally came from Istanbul, Turkey!) Rafflesia (This beautiful bright red but stinky flower is the symbol of Malaysia.)




    Historical Figures: John Calvin, Leonardo Davinci, David Livingstone, William Wilberforce, Hudson Taylor, Eric Liddell etc.




    Foods from around the World: Gateaux (a French dessert) Stollen (a German fruitcake often made with marzipan),  Fufu (a doughlike African food that is made by the boiling and blending of plantains, yams, or cassava.) 




    In the back there is a great index and glossary included and along with this there are pages given that include definitions for various government systems and holidays from around the world. 




    There is not a drab photo in the entire book, and the bright colorful photos with the informative captions underneath were  truly the highlight of the book. Kids don't usually relish reaching for an atlas, but this one our kids took one look at and asked when I would be done reviewing it so they could start reading it!



    (The only negative in my mind was some of the inaccurate placements of locations on the US map. I did check sporadically into some of the pinned locations of sites in other countries, and I didn't see any other mistakes. It was a slight misstep that will probably be corrected in future publishing's of the book.)







    *Thanks to Master Books for providing a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.

    My favorite part is the inclusion of Christian History and tradi

    My favorite part is the inclusion of Christian History and traditions. With this information children are told when missionaries first arrived as well as how God is working in the country. This is a blessing in our home because missions is something we are very passionate about. In addition to using this in our home, I plan to take this to our monthly women's meeting where we focus on missionaries and their work around the world. This year I'll be heading up a portion of the meeting designed to help our children become more mission-minded. This Atlas will give me a great starting point for discussion with the kids in our church about the world and missionaries.

    Children's Atlas of God's World by Craig Froman is a large sized

    Children's Atlas of God's World by Craig Froman is a large sized, full color book that will appeal to children of all ages. Not only is this volume educational, it is entertaining as well. This book is complete with photographs, illustrations and maps. This atlas is like a geography sampler for children in which a selected number of countries from every continent is covered in exhaustive detail. Rather than overwhelm the young reader with encyclopedia reference like coverage full of meaningless data, for every single country in the world, this book focuses on a range of three to seven countries per continent in greater focus. The countries selected are well known countries that represent the continent as a whole. Each country included in this book has relevant information including basic facts, maps, brief histories and timelines, social customs, landmarks and wildlife in order to teach the reader the geography and social aspects of everyday life. This book combines the best of science and geography to give the reader a broad experience in learning about the world.


    This book can be used as a text in a geography or social studies course considering the amount of relevant background material that is is provided. Information about biomes, latitude and longitude and world goverments is just a sample of what is provided in this book. This book will give the student a broad picture of the world and not simply an introduction to isolated nations and countries. If this book is used as a text as part of a social studies curriculum, the student will get a complete picture of the world as a whole.


    As the title indicates, this book is written with the assumption that God is the creator and author of the universe. Nevertheless this book can be enjoyed by the secular, non religious student as well as the homeschooled Christian student and their families. The professional and inviting layout of this book can rival the quality of any secular textbook. The fact that this atlas makes reference to God, our creator, communicates to the young reader that God is the creator of all- and should not simply be limited to Sunday school once a week. Secular education leaves God out of the picture entirely, leaving many secular students with a compartmentalized view of faith and the bible. This book shows how God is part of all aspects of life. As a blogger for New Leaf Publishers I received this book published by Master Books, part of the New Leaf Publishing Group.
