Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-This updated, colorful atlas provides snapshots of the world. Globes, maps, and landforms are explained through clear language and bright illustrations in the opening pages. Following this general overview, the information becomes more specific with details about each continent. Each oversize spread contains a map and photographs and pictures of people, animals, places, and things particular to the region, described in detailed captions. There is also a short, chatty paragraph, sometimes in first person, that will give readers a sense of what the children in the photographs think about what they are doing or their country. At the bottom of each page are small pictures of landmarks, natural and man-made, of the area. This updated version includes details about the United States and Canada not found in the 1994 edition. While the factual information is limited, the illustrations will introduce readers to the variety of cultures and landscapes around the world.-Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
