In addition, guidance is given at the beginning of the atlas on how to use the maps, encouraging the early development of map skills.
The atlas is organized spread by spread in the classic sequence: first Europe, then its land neighbour Asia, followed by Africa, Australia and Oceania, North America and South America.
Illustrated with interesting full-colour photographs and packed with fact boxes, curiosities, flags, stamps and quiz questions, Philip's Children's Atlas is both fun to use and easy to understand.

It links places to issues, events and real people, giving a clear sense of place. Now in its 15th edition.
