Two new finds for this month's #geography theme. Another Atlas of Adventures is out, but this time it’s been shrunken down to feature small-scale wonders of the world like the Musée Miniature in Lyon, the World’s Smallest Postal Service in San Francisco and the smallest seahorse in the world living among the coral reefs off Indonesia’s Derawan Islands.
In the new Atlas of Adventures activity book, kids pack for the trip of a lifetime around the world, stopping on each continent on a hunt for a list of landmarks, people, foods and animals specific to that region of the world (which they later color in). In Europe, they look for a dish of paella and the Louvre pyramid, and when they get to Asia, it’s a snow monkey and mud brick palace that they search for. Interesting facts sprinkled throughout the book make it a fascinating journey for all. And when kids are done with their international scavenger hunt, it’s time to choose a place to lay their head—a treehouse, floating or hotel or even an underwater lodge! The book includes some fun extras as well, like a huge customizable world map. Both books are great for a rainy day or just to add to your geography collection at home.
Both books were illustrated by Lucy Letherland (@lucy_letherland) and Atlas of Miniature Adventures was written by Emily Hawkins. Published by Wide Eyed Editions (@quartokids).
