When we travel, we like the kids to learn about places we have visited or passed through in the U.S. This atlas can help them plan our trip or just follow our trip from state to state. There is a section that explains all the symbol on the maps, and the different time zones in the book. The maps also include Canada and Mexico, along with the states. Each state has its own page map, along with the state bird, tree, flower, and a great game related to the state. You may find travel games, word puzzles, or brain teasers, and you can find answers at the end of the book if necessary. These are to keep the child from being bored, or to enlighten their skills about our country. In the book you will find a variety of information on the states, as well as colorful pictures. The maps on each page give the name of the state and their capital, and a map that shows all the roads in that state.
We have found that this atlas can also be used in school when they have school projects. The book is about the size of their notebook and will fit into their notebooks or backpacks. The atlas is full of information and was a good gift that they received.
