            Our world is an amazing place. It's full of rivers, mountains, animals, and too many other amazing places to count. But that's not all.

Unlike an atlas, this encyclopedia of discovery will entertain, educate, and inspire readers to wonder about the world around them. On one page they'll read about their body and brain, on another they'll learn about languages, sporting events, or the environment, and on others, they can marvel at wonders of the Earth such as fiery volcanoes, sprawling cities, or a place called The Chocolate Hills . My Very Important World allows readers to delight in discovering where the coldest place on Earth is, how many languages there are, why they sometimes feel scared, and much, much more. There's a big wide world out there - so turn the pages to explore it.
