This new edition of the Oxford International Primary Atlas is clear, bright and informative. It includes up-to-date country data, easy-to-read colourful mapping, and worldwide topographic content, including areas such as Europe, Malta, Cyprus, Middle East, Malaysia and Hong Kong. It features key geographical themes such as landscapes, water, settlements, connections, and environments. Information is presented in an accessible format based on research into how young children use maps, and easy-to-use features include learning statements to summarize each theme, focus panels to prompt independent or group enquiry, innovative grid codes to help children find places listed in the index, many colourful photographs to aid children's understanding of map symbols, attractive artwork to provide a 'sense of place', and stimulating graphics to make large numbers easy to understand.

The atlas includes:

· Learning statements to introduce each geographical theme
· Clear and colourful maps of the world and all the continents
· Stunning aerial photographs and satellite images
· Focus panels to prompt further enquiry and topic discussion
· Child-friendly grid codes and index to support their use of the atlas

The Oxford International Primary Atlas is also accompanied by an Activity Book for independent work to develop map literacy skills.
