Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This useful atlas begins with a number of interesting maps about the United States, including ones showing the change in population of states and regions (according to the 2000 U.S. Census,) population distribution by region, and largest metropolitan areas. These are followed by maps displaying world population density, and then several maps that predict future population changes, world-wide. Finally, each region of the world is displayed with major city populations, along with colored regional maps showing population density, vegetation types, and gross national product levels. These maps are followed by half- or full-page maps of individual countries, each including a list of regions, cities, and towns, as well as an illustration of the flag, population information, monetary unit, largest city, languages, and area in square miles and square kilometers. This portion of the atlas is followed by a comprehensive index. The latter portion of the book provides the same treatment for the United States, first showing the country as a whole, and then state by state. Various pale colors of shading are used on the maps to add additional information. The colors would probably be indistinguishable for most color-blind students. Although the atlas is printed on nice heavy weight paper, its matte finish decreases the attractiveness of the book. Up to date atlases are always desirable, and this one seems particularly comprehensive, making it a useful addition for most libraries. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 9 to 18.
