Kids’ Beginner’s World Atlas

These Nat Geo guides are pretty sweet.

After checking out several excellent books from the series, I have a new habit: reserving new National Geographic books from the library every week. I can’t help it; it’s a compulsion. Each and every book proves to be just as impressive if not even more so than the previous book, and even if we don’t read them my six-year-old and I end up gazing at the photos and reading the captions for a very long time.

The National Geographic Kids Beginner’s World Atlas is no different from these other books. It has gorgeous full-color pictures, plenty of animals and maps for kids to check out, and dozens of fact boxes about land regions, plants, water, climate, and more. Some of the photos are simply breathtaking!
