The author starts by explaining what a country is and how the countries that we know change over the course of history as new ones are formed and old ones dissolve. Having established this baseline, next comes the sense of what will be found in each colorful map spread. There will be history, people of note, key facts, bodies of water, historical sites, capital cities and more. Truly an adventure is being offered to young and inquisitive explorers in these fifty maps which include countries throughout the world, starting with France and other European countries and then traveling the continents.
I would have adored this book as a child. I also enjoy it now that I am an adult.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
