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!!
