A map can say much more than the locations of things—indeed, it can tell a story. That’s the impetus behind “The Picture Atlas,” a new children’s book by Simon Holland and illustrator Jill Calder. Curious page-turners will see and learn about a colorful world filled “not only with borders, mountains, rivers, seas and oceans,” but one that is rife with natural wonders, historical artifacts, extraordinary animals, cultures, and more. The beautiful atlas, published by Bloomsbury Children’s, hits shelves (and Amazon) on September 21. From there, it awaits distribution to the next generation of world travelers.
