My favorite book! July 31 2011
By Christian Beare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I absolutely love this book and think all kids should have one! It has the different continents on each page with flaps all over the page. It teaches children all about different cultures, geography, and more. I have already given it to my son and several of his friends for their birthdays. And the map is great too. We pinned it up on my son's wall.

Beautiful atlas... if only they had ALL the countries on the maps! Jan. 21 2013
By Munich Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I saw this at a children's museum today and LOVED it - beautiful pictures, interesting facts, engaging text... I took a picture of the book so I could order when I got home except.... when we looked at South America to see Ecuador - the country we had visited this summer for 5 week - IT WAS NOT PART OF THE CONTINENT!! That's right - Columbia is there, Venezuela too and right below Columbia where Ecuador ACTUALLY exists - is PERU!! This is VERY misleading for kids and adults alike! Ok, you can't fit a fact about each country on a double page - I get it, but at least put ALL the counties in for each continent OR - here's another idea - DON'T CALL YOURSELF AN ATLAS!!! Be a lift the flap book about some countries of the world!! VERY disappointed!!

Wish I had bought more. Great Christmas gift for the nephews but my daughter couldn't take her hands of it.
a brief introduction to the continents of the world. Aug. 18 2015
By ScotFlower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this as a first introduction to the world, its continents, its ecosystems, and its people's history/cultures, etc. This book does that in a very fun way with engaging art and facts. NO... it does not cover all peoples, all countries, or all the things you can think should be in this book... but that is ok. Usually I am upset at things like Ecuador not being shown on the map (because it is one of the few countries I have actually traveled to and love)... but at the end of the day, this book is NOT teaching all the countries of the world. This book is teaching the 7 continents of the world and some facts about each. So what you get is an assortment of facts from geology, biology, culture, history, etc... AND I was still surprised by some of the content included. For example the atlas for North, Central, and South America clearly shows archaeology for Maya, Aztec, and Inca (I have rarely seen all three in any book for very little ones)... plus has pictured Cree, Eskimo, Inuit, Awa (yes there are a lot more people groups but this is a lot for a children's book)... Plus sites like the Cave of Hands, Easter Island, and the Nazca Lines (I had never even heard of the former)... and modern landmarks like the Statute of Liberty, Space Needle, Brasilia, Friendship Bridge, Statue of Christ the Redeemer, Statue of Jose Artigas (I know there are a bunch more but to be honest I didn't even know of some South American sites). On top of that, there are over 25 different animal species presented AND each is labeled. Oh and I am just getting started. With so much just on the Americas... you can imagine how many facts are actually in this book. Overall, I will take off a star just because a few things are not very clear to me... but for the most part a great buy.
Fun yet educational Sept. 15 2014

My son loves the flaps - so many to do! I love the details *and* the large map poster with its own handy storage pocket in the back of the book. Excellent keys and fun facts for the elementary aged-child yet detailed enough to be useful for even a middle-schooler. Has political boundaries as well as physical boundaries between different climates, etc. Is a little out of date since published a few years ago but still an excellent resource.
