Overview

Jam packed with the latest data, bright, bold images, large maps, a brand-new design, and lively information about the world’s land, people, and animals, the third edition Beginner’s World Atlas will be the most up-to-date world reference for kids ages 5–8. True to National Geographic’s reputation and legacy, we’ve created this atlas with the same care and attention to detail as our renowned adult atlases. “No one does maps or atlases with as much panache and knowledge as National Geographic,” said the Washington Post.

With completely up-to-date facts-at-a-glance, a glossary, pronunciation guide, and comprehensive index, this completely revised atlas takes young readers on a high-energy tour of the world and will be a must-have in every home and school. Vibrant color, fresh design, amazing photography, and new icons will help kids quickly identify information related to land, plants, animals, languages and culture, and all aspects of the physical and political world. Parents and teachers will appreciate the front matter with information for children about maps and how to use the atlas.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Except for a few new photos and updated statistics, this version is identical to the 2005 edition, making it an unnecessary purchase for libraries that have the latter volume. It is already out of date (it shows Sudan as one country) and it misses some opportunities to improve upon the last edition by discussing geographic oddities that are sure to interest children. For example, why does Bolivia have two capitals? How was the border between Europe and Asia decided? How should New Zealand be classified if it is not part of any continent (in fact, when looking at the map on the end pages, it is left gray, as though someone hoped that no one will notice it.) Page numbers on the world map on the end pages form a table of contents. Spreads in the opening "Understanding Your World" section discuss how a flat map represents a spherical Earth, what readers will learn from the atlas, and the difference between physical and political maps. Following that distinction is a world physical map showing land regions, water, climate, plants and animals; and a world political map showing countries, cities, people, languages, and products. The body of the atlas mainly covers continents in chapters of three spreads each; the United States and Canada have their own chapters. Students will be better off with Facts On File's The World Almanac Children's Atlas (2011), which shows South Sudan as a separate country.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
