The National Geographic Picture Atlas of Our World is the first choice among children's atlases both for browsing and reference. Its virtues range from the superb front matter--which explains plate tectonics, latitude and longitude, map projections--to the beautiful photographs and informative, engaging text. Drawbacks include some dated information on South Africa, a weak section on U.S. states (National Geographic must assume that you'll purchase its companion U.S. volume for that information), and skimpy detail in the maps and in the index, which has only about 4,000 entries. Though admirable, this should not be your only reference atlas, even in elementary school libraries and children's rooms.
