The Lovereading4Kids comment

7-11+ (Year 3-7, KS2-3). A 'one stop' primary atlas matched to the curriculum requirements and schemes of work for the UK. Clear and informative, children towrds the latter end of their primary education will very easily gain a greater understanding of geography and the use of maps with this all encompassing book.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
