Who says geography and social studies have to be boring? When kids crack open this insanely illustrated, outrageously informative atlas, they'll never look at continents, cities, landmarks, and world culture in the same way. From where to find a ring-tailed lemur to the origin of 60 percent of the world's chocolate, this book puts an eye-popping spin on the standard atlas and delves into the details of our world with:
- Stunning fold-out continent maps that showcase the world's terrains and wildlife
- A checklist of must-see landmarks and amazing objects for each location
- Cool historical notes, plus facts on the people, technology, agriculture, and more
- A spectacular pop-up map of the world and a colorful chart of the world's flags
Starting with an overview of the World at a Glance that includes a look at our place in the solar system, and wrapping up with a detailed dive into earth's oceans, there is hardly a spot on the globe left unexplored by this globetrotting book.
