Synopsis

An Illustrated Atlas of Australia and the Pacific by Malcolm Porter

The Continents in Close-Up series explores individual continents through a dynamic combination of photographs, maps, artwork, diagrams, charts and short paragraphs of information. There is a page for each of the major countries and areas featuring a map showing the major cities, rivers and mountain ranges, physical information such as population and area, and other highlighted points of interest whether they be cultural, economic or natural. Another key element of these wonderful books is the thematic maps which show the whole of the continent colour coded to reflect populations densities, beliefs, climate and vegetation, ecology and environment, economy and politics and history.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
