The award-winning National Geographic Kids United States Atlas features lively maps, and graphics; updated essays and statistics; 8 thematic map spreads, on topics such as immigration, natural hazards, the water crisis, and the "greening" of America; same-size physical and political maps for each region for easy comparison; vibrant photo essays on each region and state; more than 350 full-color illustrations; 80-plus pages of National Geographic maps; 50-plus info graphics; updated state fact boxes; geo-whiz facts; state flags, birds, and flowers; comprehensive place-name index with coordinates for easy reference; and glossary of geographic terms.
Just like its companion volume National Geographic Kids World Atlas, the USA atlas is INTERACTIVE. A specially designed Web site will allow kids to link directly to hundreds of National Geographic maps, photographs, and articles plus videos, music, games, and more that will expand their knowledge and perspective about this country and its states and regions. All maps are custom-designed for middle-grade students by the Society's world-famous cartographers and each is shown in the context of surrounding areas. Throughout, locator maps and color coding make it easy for kids to keep track of where they are and to quickly navigate from region to region and state to state.
The combination of large, detailed, yet easy-to-read maps--both physical and political; stunning, full-color photo essays; information-packed thematic spreads; and the interactive component sets this atlas apart from every other U.S. atlas currently available for the 8-12 age market and makes it an invaluable resource.

Included in this new U.S. atlas are maps of all the states in two-page spreads, plus their flags; fact boxes (population, area, largest city and capital, main industry and agriculture, statehood); and interesting “Geo Whiz” tidbits, such as “’Happy Birthday’ . . . was the creation of two Louisville sisters in 1893.” Symbols on maps indicate where there is fishing, poultry, wheat, food processing, electrical equipment, and about 55 other economic categories. Arrangement is alphabetical within five geographic areas, and there are also a few pages on U.S. territories. At this price point, libraries should also consider circulating copies. An attractive, inexpensive student atlas, good for browsing and quick reference. Grades 3-6. --Susan Gooden
