With more photos, maps, and graphics than the leading competition, the SCHOLASTIC ATLAS OF THE WORLD is now available in paperback. This is a must-have for every home, library, and classroom.
With more than 80 maps, hundreds of color photographs, and thousands of statistics, the SCHOLASTIC ATLAS OF THE WORLD will enrich and expand a child's view of each and every country around the globe. Each topographical map clearly locates important cities, mountains, deserts, and bodies of water, indicating border countries and national capitals. Essays about the cutlure and geography of each country are included, accompanied by photographs that take readers on a visual journey. "Discover More" sections further extend the learning.

Although the copyright is 2001, there was a new and updated printing of this atlas in 2003. The almost 30 pages of introductory material has information not found in other atlases, such as a section on how mountains are formed and the different kinds of rocks. There is also a good explanation of the types of maps. The map section is introduced by political and physical world maps. Each continental, country, and regional map is accompanied by fact boxes, a "Search and Find" key for locating geographic locations, time zone information, small color photographs, and more. This atlas is second only to Gareth Stevens Atlas of the World (p.1644) in the number of individual maps representing regions and countries--there are more than 70, including 9 for Africa and 10 for the U.S. Maps are not highly detailed and don't show latitude and longitude, although these are given for some locations. Following the maps is a list of dependencies and disputed territories.
