5 out of 5 stars

This beginner’s atlas is perfect for young readers with a curiosity about the world! It starts with how maps show different states and landscapes, and how to read a map using the key, the compass, and the distance scale that shows miles and kilometers. Full of colorful illustrations and photos, this atlas grabs the reader’s attention!

I like how the book is divided up by region into the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, the West, and territories. It makes it easy to find what you are looking for, and to see how states that border each other have a lot in common. Each state flag is featured along with the state bird, state tree, and common wildlife and crops for the region.

The text and illustrations are large and clear, making it easy to read and understand. There’s forests, mountain ranges, cities, swamps, ancient trails, rivers, and national parks, all neatly marked on the maps. Because it’s a paperback, it’s lightweight and perfect for little kids.

This book is perfect for young readers, ages 7-10, who are just beginning to learn about the wide world and all the beauties it contains.
