Description

Take an exciting journey around the world and explore every country on Earth. Beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Anthony Lewis, the colorful maps combine with lively and informative text to make this an essential atlas for younger readers.

Jet off to South America and discover the Amazon rainforest, journey to Scandinavia and visit a mermaid, then wrap up warm as you head south to Antarctica—the coldest place on Earth. Pictograms show where to find animals and places of interest: can you find the sunbathing walrus in Alaska? And the Tasmanian devil in Australia?

This atlas is the perfect first geography reference book for both home and school.
