AMAZING WORLD ATLAS: LONELY PLANET
I find that it is easy to forget that we live in a fascinating world, especially after watching the evening news on TV.
The Amazing World Atlas is not a collection of maps, but an amazing book full of illustrations, drawings, photos, graphics and interesting texts.
This Atlas takes children around the world and introduces them to different countries, history, cultures and fascinating facts, in a very fun and irresistible way: with riddles, tests, a list of Top 10 facts …
The book is structured by continents and follows a common scheme that makes it really easy and enjoyable to read: each continent has a brief introduction with geographical, historical, social and cultural information.
Then, the atlas focus on different countries, providing useful information about its inhabitants, fauna, history and anecdotes.
The Atlas is beautifully edited, but what I loved most about this book is that it shows children the diversity of human cultures and the wonders of our planet: from earth’s place in the solar system, to the continents, animal habitats, celebrities, strange languages…
This superb atlas is suggested for children over 7 years old. In April my oldest son will turn 8, and will receive this Atlas as a birthday present.
