"This atlas of the physical and political maps of the world is organized by content and includes introductory material so that readers may first consider global patterns in climate, nature, and the human world. Each section is introduced with a map of the continent followed by closer-in views with enough detail for readers to search out principal and many secondary cities; lakes, rivers and bodies of water; topographical features; and bordering geography. A sidebar of three to five paragraphs suggests aspects of the area under view, such as principal products, population centers, historical facts, or other interesting but peripheral facts. A glossary and index of place names assists readers in locating places. A CD includes 40 maps that are ready to print and a map of North America is tipped in for easy removal . . . a useful resource for report writers and a handy reference for . . . middle school learners."—Susan Hepler, Ph.D., Children's Literature

"This oversized volume presents maps of planet Earth, the poles, the oceans, North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. A small globe shows the location of the area under discussion. Each map shows the physical characteristics of the land and the political boundaries. Introductory material is provided on the solar system and on Earth's geological features, climate, and various habitats. Full-color photographs and maps give readers concrete examples of the facts given in the text. General information includes a short description of the land, crops, and industry for each region. Mention is made of pollution, desertification, deforestation, acid rain, and other environmental concerns. A glossary, index, and a wall map of North America are appended, and a Mac or PC compatible CD that can be used to print more than 40 maps is housed in the front cover. This is an easy-to-use resource."—Lana Miles, Duchesne Academy, Houston, Texas, School Library Journal
