What You Need to Know:
Maps is an exquisite, non-traditional atlas.
Maps would make a wonderful gift. You could even put it on your coffee table (it's that beautiful!).
• This book has a wide age-range: toddlers to adults will marvel at this book.
Sweet Book Summary:
Maps is not your traditional atlas. It is a stunning collection of paintings that depict our world - and that is not an exaggeration. It also doesn't provide the traditional information an atlas provides. Instead, this book focuses on the history, culture and natural resources of each country. There is so much to see on every page/map. It is reminiscent of a Richard Scary book, albeit a more artistic, sophisticated Richard Scary. The similarities to the beloved Scary books lie in the fact that you can pour over one spread for hours and find something new to look at. This book will introduce you and your little one to far-flung places, without every leaving the comfort of your home.
