Unlike any other you have ever seen before, this atlas brings our amazing world to life in 3-D. With its more than 60 specially commissioned 3-D maps and artworks, it takes kids on a continent-by-continent tour of the world and even includes an introductory visual explanation of Earth's evolution.
Each continent is explored in great detail, with topic maps on major geographical features, cities and monuments, population, wildlife, and more. From the Great Lakes to the Great Barrier Reef, map keys add extra layers of information, and special fact sections support the data provided on the maps. A gazetteer of facts and figures at the back of the book profiles each country in detail.
Encouraging learning every step of the way, Where on Earth? Atlas is the perfect home reference for any child with an interest in the diversity of the world around them.
