The Oxford Junior Atlas is a clear and informative atlas for all 7-11 year olds. It combines the essential features of simple and colourful mapping with many colour photographs, including aerial photos and satellite imagery. There is good topographic coverage of the United Kingdom at a generous scale, as well as extensive thematic coverage of the British Isles, the Continents, and the World. Illustrated information panels identify issues raised by the map topics that include Rivers, Weather, Settlement, and Environmental change. Picture icons provide visual clues to common themes. A child-friendly index includes both page numbers and grid references.
