Overview

Superbly detailed relief maps are complemented by fact boxes of important statistics and pertinent information, plus illustrations of national and state flags, flora and fauna, and notable events from history.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
An interesting selection of facts and visuals insures student interest in this atlas. Each spread on a province of Canada, state in the United States, region in Mexico, and area of Central America includes text information on the history, economy, and geography of the area. There is also a fact box which includes flags and population and cultural data; symbols such as bird, tree, and flower; maps and topical information about endangered species; famous people and events, and other subjects of interest to the target audience. The Caribbean Islands are given short shrift for an archipelago of such varied history and culture, but this book will be a useful addition to a school or home library. More of a browsing than a study book, it will certainly spur ideas for further reading or research for school papers. Particularly helpful are the maps, which label each border, so that it is clear that Alabama, for instance, is placed between Mississippi and Georgia with Tennessee to the North and Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the South. Some spectacular photographs and the many colored drawings of animals make this book a pleasure. 2005, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 9 to 14.
