With a completely new look, the updated edition of The Beginner's World Atlas will match the awe and energy that was brought to 'the NGK Wild Animal Atlas'. This includes a brand new, vibrant colour palette that allows amazing photography to jump off the page, new icons that help kids to quickly identify information related to land, plants, animals, language and culture, and all aspects of the physical and political world, and lively and informative text that is easily accessible to young readers. Readers will be taken on a journey of exploration and discovery that will give them an appreciation for our planet and all that's on it. Front matter teaches children about maps and how to use this atlas, and back matter provides facts at-a-glance, a glossary, pronunciation guide, and index.
