Barefoot Books World Atlas
This is the atlas for twenty-first-century readers. It’s packed with information about the way in which communities and cultures around the world have been shaped by their local environments, and it looks at the ideas and initiatives that are shaping the future. Maps of regions and oceans bring faraway places to life, with illustrated geographic and architectural features, people, plants and wildlife, from oil fields to Buddhist monks to the Amazon rainforest.
Explore our world as never before! Find the countries featured in our global stories and discover the animals, architecture and activities that make them special. Laid out by geographic region, our colorful World Atlas celebrates cultural diversity and highlights the ways different people care for this planet we all call home. Features a pull-out map and fold-out booklets and panels, all hand-painted by award-winning illustrator David Dean.
