Gr. 4-6. Divided into volumes by continents, the new World in Maps series offers physical and political maps of the world's countries, combined with brief facts and a few color photos. In addition to the maps, each entry features at-a-glance stats on the country's population, government, languages, currency, size, and capital. Also included are a few paragraphs about exports, notable physical features, and, in a few cases, recent history: for example, the page about the former Yugoslavian nations features a sidebar chronology of the conflict through 1999. Encyclopedias, particularly those online, will easily provide the same combination of succinct facts and maps, and the information will probably be more current and comprehensive. But the format of this series is attractive and immediately accessible, and libraries may see a need for this material in a slim, bound form that students can hold in their hands and take home.
