Karen Foster is a Compass Point Books author.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–4—Designed for students just beginning to use atlases, these books offer well-organized, easy-to-access information. All three open with a map of the Earth highlighting the specific continent in relation to the rest of the world. The spreads also include general information about maps including definitions of terms such as "equator," "Tropic of Cancer," and "Arctic Circle"; and descriptions of map features such as legends, compass roses, and scale. This information prepares readers as they explore the continents through sections about countries (though Greenland is not labeled on the map of North America), landforms, bodies of water, climate, plants, animals, people and customs, products, and transportation. Young readers are sure to like "Postcard Places," which features color photographs of the more amazing places on the relevant continent. Small photographs or colorful text boxes draw readers' attention to points of interest or fun facts. Maps and legends are simple, yet disseminate information clearly. These books will engage young researchers with a bit more ease than Wendy Vierow's "Atlas of the Seven Continents" series (Rosen).—Christine Lindsey, Lake Superior Primary School, Ashland, WI
