Barron's Amazing Fact-Packed, Fold-Out Atlas of the World: With Awesome Pop-Up Map! {Written by Emilee}

Today, we have a fun book to share with all of our readers. It is called,
Barron's Amazing Fact-Packed, Fold-Out Atlas of the World
by Jen Green.


 

 About:

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.

In my opinion: 
Wow! I was very impressed with this book. This book included a pop up map of the Countries of the world and a few pages of each continent. My four year old isn't quite ready to learn all about the world but it does get him excited. He loved having the map open all the time.
Each page was colorful and exciting. There were interesting facts about each continent and it made reading fun. I definitely recommend getting your hands on Barron's Amazing Fact-Packed Atlas of the world. It really is amazing!
