I gave this to my daughter who loves maps as an extra Christmas gift. She is going to pass it down to her daughter, a college student studying to be an elementary teacher. She said she has enjoyed mulling it over a little each morning with her cup of tea. A big hit!! Not just for kids.

The book presents maps of many different countries from around the world. It is an informative book filled with fascinating facts and amazing illustrations. The reader will learn about the culture of each featured country and that maps aren't just only about places. The individual maps will also show the capital, major cities, native languages, population, area, landmarks, favorite food dishes, animals, famous residents and many more important traditions and historical facts. I enjoyed discovering and learning about interesting factual details about each county. My favorite country was Russia. It's the largest country in the world and also has the world's largest railroad line called The Trans-Siberian Railroad. The railroad line is 5,780 miles long and runs from the capital of Moscow to Vladivostok. I recommend this entertaining book for readers of all ages to explore and happily give MAPS a rating of five stars. Review by Cyrus S., age 8, Greater New York Mensa

I bought this for my 9-year-old nephew, and he loves finding out more and more about the countries. It's just beautiful, and perfect for opening the marvelous diversity of the world to a child.

I enjoy looking at Mizielinska's books. They are packed full of information and they are books that take a while to get through, and this book is no exception. A book of maps: maps that look historical in nature, maps that are full of facts and pictures to intrigue your mind. Some of the maps are placed horizontally and some are vertical, depending on the region. information on each page include: capital, languages, population, area, flag, animals and foods of the region, cities, and interesting information about that region. I liked that there is an illustration for each fact that they share on each page. Even though some of the illustrations are not very detailed, you can understand what the illustrator was attempting to highlight. I also liked all the facts on the pages, how the author tried to fill each page with interesting information. I liked the interesting facts that the author chose to include, from basic information, like animals to trivia information. It's a fun book to pour over, I'm sure you'll find something you didn't know.

Beautifully drawn maps, including typical animals, native costumes and geographical features. Amazing book for your kids, although I would not recommend for small children.

Such a fun and fascinating read to find out more about the world. Packed with details on facts of some countries. Great graphics, thick paper, very well made. An excellent alternative to the conventional atlas. I am in my 30s and I find "Maps" is another great addition to my private collection.
