School Library Journal

Gr 3–7—Journey the continents and countries with this vibrant reference that offers games and country data in addition to maps. Opening material includes a section on how to use the book and the maps featured. Most countries are covered on a whole spread (very small nations such as Malta and Vatican City have only one page), and the entries are arranged by continent and then region. An overview paragraph and map are included for each country, and entries for larger nations include a list of five things to do while there; three attractions; essential facts; and the national bird, flower, and mammal. "Digital traveler!" sections encourage research on National Geographic's site. When looking at this feature for Peru, for example, readers will find images of animals, such as guanacos, vicunas, alpacas, and llamas, and are then invited to reflect upon similarities and differences from animals in their own area. This atlas is bursting with colorful and catchy photographs, images, and fact boxes. It is ideal for students who want to learn more about the world for their own knowledge and is also a great supplement to geography projects or travel planning.—Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District

Each country is filled with cool things to do and country facts, such as size, population, capital, official language, and currency. Some cool things to do include riding a reindeer sleigh in Lapland, Finland; walk on the ocean floor in Nassau, Bahamas; search for dugongs on Nyati Beach, Mozambique; and walk a path of stone money in Yap, Micronesia - all activities to capture readers’ attention. Filled with color photographs, color pages, fun facts, and interesting things to do, this atlas will amaze. Included are instructions about how to use the atlas and maps, a picture of a world map, glossary, additional country data, country abbreviations, and an index.?In the back of the book is a maze, as well as color photographs with scrambled letters below the photographs that must be unscrambled to identify what is in each photograph.?This is an educational and entertaining book.
