Overview

If you know kids, you'll know that once they find a book they like... you could be reading it for weeks or months!

They love this at bedtime... its truly colourful for my little 3 year old with some lovely pictures, graphics and a real 'usborne' feel. For my 6 year old... he is fascinated by facts, and the well designed maps, information and knowledge of other places in the world.

It has maps of the whole world, with beautiful childrens icons and pictures of what lives there, what to see and facts and figures.

My mum and dad travel alot now they are retired, and following Nanny and Grandad on their travels really brings their understanding and the book to life.

The book offers excellent value for money, and is constantly being bought out at bed time.

Summary

This book is lovely to read, and i recommend it for your bedtime/daytime reads! The only issue we now have is that I am starting to get fed up with the same story night after night!

This reads like a good introduction, but I think you need to say more about the contents of the Atlas - how many maps, of where, what detail they show and how they are illustrated, for example.
