What Wee Read
Maps by Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski
As we watch the Olympics with our kids, we've been trying to teach them a little bit about the countries represented. So we were thrilled to find what must be the most beautifully illustrated, kid-friendly atlas (that covers part of the world). It's for all ages, really. In addition to cities, forests, deserts and seas, each map features fascinating factoids – from famous natives, to local foods, to where to spot a leopard seal. Bonus: an appendix illustrates flags of the world (helpful for closing ceremonies "what-country-is-this?" game).
