The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bright, attractive and cleverly designed, this first atlas invites children to travel the world in a book, introducing them to the seven continents and their natural features as well as to the people living there. Using a mix of photos and colourful graphics, it presents a great deal of information in a very inviting and accessible way. Alongside maps, clearly marking out the world’s different countries, there are boxes with fast facts – the countries in numbers: population, biggest city, largest religion etc – and quirkier information covering food, sport, pastimes and culture. It’s great for dipping into and for homework help, and tells you a huge amount about our planet and its wildlife and peoples. ~ Andrea Reece


Children's Discovery Atlas by Anita Ganeri

Each map includes ‘sight-seeing’ features, identified by illustrations, photographs and captions and a Fast Facts panel (featuring the busiest, smallest, most famous regions, etc).

Countries and regions are given a whole page or spread which means that while packed with detail, the maps are not cluttered and are easy to follow - captions are clear and wellpositioned making it accessible for all readers.

A beautiful first atlas which goes beyond naming borders, cities, landmarks and natural features to show the unique customs of the people who live in each country.


'This atlas's byline is 'Travel the whole world in one book'

's a great way to introduce children aged 7+ to the globe, beginning with a map of the main continents and a useful explanation of biomes, before taking the reader through each major continent.' * Reading Zone *'
