Children's Atlas of God's World Review

Whether you homeschool or not, a good home library should at least include:

*A book of Bible facts
*A book of History (in a time-line format)
*A book of General Science facts
*A book of Animal facts
*An Atlas

Upon first picking up a Children's Atlas of God's World by Craig Froman I was struck with some similarities between this book and Passport to the World.  Turns out both books were written by the same author!

In this atlas, each of the 7 continents are featured and marked with Christian History & Tradition, major landmarks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Biomes.  Each of the featured countries (22 in all) showcase their flag, capital, government system, language, population, monetary unit, area, symbol, anthem and largest city.  PLUS individual facts about foods, people, customs, wildlife, holidays and more are shared.

"Bright!"  "Colorful!"  "BIG!"  are the words that come to mind when looking through this book.

Though this is truly a beautiful and fact filled atlas, I scratch my head with the prominence of UNESCO sites that are highlighted throughout the book.  Because of this, I'm personally not comfortable using this atlas in my home.

Take a peek inside this book.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of Children's Atlas of God's World from Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
