Editorial Reviews

Child Magazine
"[My World and Globe] helps kids…understand everything from animals and oceans to explorers and the equator." - CHILD MAGAZINE.
Children's Literature
Continents, maps, time zones, landmarks, weather and more are covered in this excellent, interactive geography book and globe. Children will find a wealth of information on the world they live in. The text and illustrations blend really well together to provide key facts in a child friendly way. Readers will learn to think about where they live relative to other places in the world. How do the towns, states, and countries we live in fit into the larger picture of planet Earth? How can you use geography to discover information about your world? How do you decipher a map? How is the Earth always changing? Where do the products your family uses come from? Your bicycle may come from Japan, your clothes from China and your pineapple juice from Hawaii. This book will help children think about these questions and why they are important. Where one lives matters a great deal—for example, whether one needs snow boots depends on the climate of your city. Some readers may not realize that children living in other parts of the world never see snow. The wondrous world opens here and sets readers on a journey of discovery. Each chapter contains an inset with "Sticker Tricks." This refers to the 100-plus stickers readers will use to decorate the inflatable globe that comes with this book. The colorful stickers feature animals, landmarks, explorers, city signs, and more. 2003 (orig.1991), Workman Publishing Co., Ages 6 to 10.
