Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This title in the World Atlases series delivers exciting facts about Africa plus an introduction to maps and map reading. First, readers find a world map that locates Africa on the globe, followed by a series of nine maps, each showing a big, colorful view of the continent shaded and labeled to convey different types of information. The first identifies the 53 countries and includes pictures of their flags. Other maps show the distribution of population, landforms, languages, resources, climate, plants, animals, industry, and more. Opposite each large map, a brief paragraph of text and smaller, illustrated panels and photos offer further details about African landscape and culture, from views of a baobab tree in the grasslands to the packed cities of Nairobi and Cairo. Focusing primarily on accurate, up-to-date facts about Africa today and the people who live there, this attractive, convenient reference for young grade-schoolers concludes with Africa At-a-Glance statistics, a long, detailed glossary, and instructions about accessing prescreened Web resources.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist"
