as climate or wildlife. There's also photographs, sound effects, and a little animation. The text is a more dense that would be ideal for a younger child, so I would recommend this to good readers in the 9-11 age range. This atlas should probably also be paired with another, so children aren't confused by the regional organization.

Awesome, lush, informative, with everything in the world crowded in but it never feels pressed for space. Seems to devote a slightly inordinate amount of time to environmental stuff but that's my pre-crisis thinking that needs to change.
