Atlas of Everything—not your run-of-the-mill atlas. This one shows you over 50 data maps of the world from very specific perspectives such as tallest buildings, population growth, popular names, urbanization, water access, natural disasters, animal migration, diet and caloric intake, languages, film, education and literacy.
It includes facts, infographics and statistics that are food for thought, and warrant further meaningful discussion. Definitely for the older set, and should probably be read with parents present to answer the likely questions that will arise. A great reference to have on hand.
Atlas of Everything is by Jon Richards and Ed Simkins. Published by Wayland Books | Hachette (@waylandbooks | @hachettekids).
