Description of this Book

The atlas is organized spread by spread in the classic sequence: first Europe, then its land neighbour Asia, followed by Africa, Australia and Oceania, North America and South America. Illustrated with interesting full-colour photographs and packed with fact boxes, curiosities, flags, stamps and quiz questions, Philip's Children's Atlas is both fun to use and easy to understand. A past winner of the Geographical Association's award for making a significant contribution to geography, Philip's Children's Atlas was judged an excellent 'all round' children's atlas with simple yet well-designed maps, well-illustrated with colour photographs. It links places to issues, events and real people, giving a clear sense of place.
