The Lovereading4Kids comment

Aimed at 14+. The perfect atlas for all 11-18 year olds matched to the curriculum requirements and schemes of work for the UK. The mapping has exceptional clarity and the whole layout is one of amazing clarity.


Oxford Student Atlas by Robert Allen

The Oxford Student Atlas is a completely revised, up-to-date atlas with digital maps that are accurate and easy-to-read. Satellite images are used to enhance and clarify map detail and the easy-to-use features include a multi-access contents page, clear explanations of graphics, a two-colour index of place names, and flags of the world at a usable size. There is comprehensive coverage of the British Isles at a convenient scale of 1:100 000, together with world mapping and an eight page world statistical section. It includes mapping on motivating topics such as cyberspace, crime, disease, refugees, and the world's most exciting holiday destinations, that will appeal to students.
