Apparently, we Americans are living in a world of our own. According to a National Geographic survey, only thirty-seven percent of young adults could locate Iraq on a map and half of them couldn't place New York State. Studies show that this trend starts early: U.S. kids score appallingly bad on tests about geographical knowledge. National Geographic Kids World Atlas qualifies as a rare brain booster in this neglected, yet increasingly vital subject. With maps, crosswords, picture puzzles, and geo-themed games, this 200 plus page paperback original presents information that youngsters eight and above need to know about our planet.
