Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"No Wi-Fi? No problem. Whether you’re driving through states or flying over them on your family vacation, this cool atlas will keep kids engaged with the geography and history all around them." —parentmap.com

"This atlas won’t disappoint the young geographer.” —A Reading Life

Children's Literature - Natalie Gurr
Road trip! There are over 4 million miles of highway in the United States and thousands of different sites to see. The National Geographic Guide provides road maps and detailed information about all fifty United States as well as Washington D.C. Each state is covered on a two-fold page that includes interesting information and topics entitled "Roadside Attractions" and "5 Cool Things to do Here." Many of the facts are geared towards children, for instance, in New Jersey you cannot drive past a skateboarder without honking and in Wisconsin you cannot park a car for more than two hours unless a horse is tied to it. The pages are bright and colorful, but the layout is busy and slightly confusing. Teachers could use this book to spark interest in different states, but it is not useful enough to write a definitive report. Students with a penchant for traveling and geography will enjoy looking through the unique features of different states. Reviewer: Natalie Gurr

This book is perfect for going on trips to new places. I can't stress how much two pages of this book helped me learn so much about a single state. Filled with colorful pictures and interesting facts the book is not only a traveler's book but a good book to read at home. The activities involved in this book help make learning an enjoyable experience. Many facts in this book surprise me and make me eager to start exploring a state online. I find this book a good traveler's guide or a new way to learn more about the states.

This is a very informative activity book. The kids learn many interesting facts about the country while solving puzzles and mazes. It keeps the kids busy. National geographic books, atlases and activity books are always a good buy.
