The cover, photos, captions, maps, tables, charts, and graphs are all very appealing, colorful, and well organized. The Table of Contents is color coded, which makes the navigation of this atlas very kid-friendly. I found looking through this atlas quite interesting. Unfortunately, stats presented in the world population section, will soon become outdated and the atlases will need to be replaced in a few years.
