"Atlas of Islands," which is a First Discover Book, is one of many in its series. Children, ages 4-9, will enjoy discovering how an island is born, how each island is home to an exotic variety of animals and lots more. Colorful and easy to understand, this book is 18 pages long and has six clear pages. When the clear pages are flipped over, the book shows barren islands transformed by undergrowth, or the contrasts between a warm, sunny island and a freezing, icy island.
Kids will like this book because of the big print, bright colors, and how it shows what an island looked like when it was born and what it looks like now. Children everywhere are sure to like this book. Older children will also enjoy the perky illustrations, and reading it to younger kids.
This book was written by Gallimard Jeunesse and Donald Grant. Grant was also the illustrator. In addition to the "Atlas of Islands," other titles include "Atlas of Animals," " Atlas of Countries," " Atlas of the Earth," "Atlas of People," and "Atlas of Plants."
