As the world grows smaller due to advances in communications and travel, it is more important than ever for young people to understand the world around them. The Scholastic Canada Atlas of the World is the perfect book to help young Canadians become knowledgeable citizens of the world. With more than eighty maps, hundreds of colour photographs and thousands of statistics, this book will enrich and expand a child's view of each and every country around the globe. Each topographical map clearly locates important cities, mountains, deserts, and bodies of water, indicating border countries and national capitals. Sidebars with essays and colourful photos will help young people understand the different cultures - seen in comparison with life in Canada. Significant statistics and information about each country are contrasted with Canadian data to provide a familiar context.
