Organized by continent, the book contains 51 maps. Each continent map lists the number of countries (or states or provinces) and the continent's population and capitals. Each country map tells the country's language and area, as well as incredibly detailed drawings of the animals, people, plants, geologic features, and people they make the place unique. The only disappointing thing was that nothing noteworthy was drawn on my Minnesota.
Readers will adore this book. I am certain the things I found intriguing would be equally interesting to others. It will also prompt an interest in map-making! I even want to make my own map.
