I love maps, and this atlas is full of incredible maps! It’s got photos and facts and culture and history, all with colorful designs and interesting little details.
The first thing I did was turn to the page for my state, Georgia, and poured over the pages, finding my town, and looking for nearby national parks and monuments.

I like how the book is divided up by region- SouthEast, SouthWest, NorthEast, MidWest, etc… 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. I was also happy to see that many of the Native American cultures are celebrated and featured in this book as a major part of the history of many states.

This book does a great job of packing a lot of information into each page without losing clarity or making the page feel jumbled. There’s forests, mountain ranges, cities, swamps, ancient trails, rivers, wildlife refuges, national parks, and of course highways all neatly marked on the maps. Because it’s a paperback, it’s lightweight and perfect for little kid backpacks.
