Synopsis

Philip's Early Years Atlas by David Wright, Rachel Noonan

Philip's Early Years Atlas is intended for pre-reading children, aged between 3 and 5 years old, with text to help parents and teachers explain what is happening on the maps and illustrations to the young children. The atlas is designed to meet the curriculum requirements for under-5s: 'Knowledge and understanding of the world'. Simple, child-friendly maps are combined with fascinating photographs and facts about the world to provide essential geographical information for very young children. 'Balloons' link photos of real places to each map. Guidance is given at the beginning of the atlas on how to use the maps, encouraging the early development of map skills and knowledge of the world. An index to the maps plus a simple illustrated glossary complete the atlas. Philip's Early Years Atlas is both fun to use and easy to understand. Each colourful spread includes additional ideas and suggestions for parents and teachers to use with young children in order to stimulate interest and understanding of the photographs, flags, stamps and maps. The main text is simple and uncomplicated, and will encourage early reading skills to develop in the children.
