Overview

The award-winning National Geographic Kids United States Atlas features lively maps, and graphics; updated essays and statistics; 8 thematic map spreads, on topics such as immigration, natural hazards, the water crisis, and the "greening" of America; same-size physical and political maps for each region for easy comparison; vibrant photo essays on each region and state; more than 350 full-color illustrations; 80-plus pages of National Geographic maps; 50-plus info graphics; updated state fact boxes; geo-whiz facts; state flags, birds, and flowers; comprehensive place-name index with coordinates for easy reference; and glossary of geographic terms.
     Just like its companion volume National Geographic Kids World Atlas, the USA atlas is INTERACTIVE. A specially designed Web site will allow kids to link directly to hundreds of National Geographic maps, photographs, and articles plus videos, music, games, and more that will expand their knowledge and perspective about this country and its states and regions. All maps are custom-designed for middle-grade students by the Society's world-famous cartographers and each is shown in the context of surrounding areas. Throughout, locator maps and color coding make it easy for kids to keep track of where they are and to quickly navigate from region to region and state to state.
     The combination of large, detailed, yet easy-to-read maps—both physical and political; stunning, full-color photo essays; information-packed thematic spreads; and the interactive component sets this atlas apart from every other U.S. atlas currently available for the 8­-12 age market and makes it an invaluable resource.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
With a double page-spread for each state and territory, this accessible and interesting atlas is priced for libraries and families alike. The book is divided into geographic sections (Northeast, West, Midwest, Southwest, and Southeast) with color bars at the top right corner of each page so readers can easily locate the section they want. The states are ordered alphabetically within those divisions. The book's front matter includes a key of the icons used on the maps, as well as instructions for using the atlas. A two-page description of additional features can be found on a web page dedicated to this reference book. Additional front matter describes the natural environment, demographics, time zones, and population changes. The District of Columbia is featured as a separate two-page spread. Within each section, the authors provide physical and political overviews, before describing each state individually. The high-quality photographs colorful and plentiful, as one might expect from National Geographic. Each state's description includes "Basics" and "Geo Whiz" fun facts in a sidebar, as well as a map, some history, and a graph of statistical information. A large format makes it easy for readers to consult the maps and graphs. Teachers will welcome this great reference book into their classrooms, and kids will enjoy it as much for the pictures as for the facts. Very highly recommended. Reviewer: Ellen Welty

    Even good for 6 year olds.

    Puts the fun in learning about states. One of my grandsons, age 6 loved it so much I bought a second one for him to take home
