Holiday Gift Guide | World Atlas Review + iPad Giveaway

About the book:

Embark on a mind-expanding journey across the planet. Your guide is earth enthusiast and TV presenter Nick Crane. Your map-maker is artist David Dean. Divided by geographical region, the Barefoot Books World Atlas looks at the way in which communities and cultures across the world have been shaped by their natural environment, and at the ideas and initiatives which are shaping the future. An atlas for the twenty-first century, it shows how all parts of the planet are interconnected and looks at the challenges which face us all in creating a sustainable future.

My Review:

Barefoot Books has succeeded with the new release of a World Atlas that is perfect for children of all ages. As a home-educating mom, we have used several other styles of atlas in our curriculum and this is by far the standout. It is a treasure trove of information about our world and its geography and it is universally appealing. The images are colorful, engaging and visually appealing. It has really captured the interest of my six year old son who reads this every day and even my young children are learning how to read a map and more. I appreciate that it includes a modern twist as it highlights sustainability and it shows how our children can shape the future of our world in a positive manner.

You can purchase the hardcover edition of the World Atlas for only $19.95 by visiting the Barefoot Books website.
