Atlas of Adventures: Wonders of the World

Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions

From the Eiffel Tower to Angkor Wat, Death Valley to Easter Island and the Great Pyramid of Giza, this edition of the beautiful and information-packed Atlas of Adventures series explores 30 wonders of the world, featuring a mix of human structures and natural phenomena.

Organised by continent, each wonder of the world is beautifully illustrated on a double-page spread, with a summary of information and small facts about its creation, history and/or present cultural significance arranged artfully on the page. There’s a useful map on each feature page, showing where in its country the wonder is located, and a large double page map of the relevant continent at the beginning of each section.

This is a lovely resource for any primary school and a brilliant book for any child to pore over at home, learning about far-flung palaces, natural wonders and no doubt inspiring a love of travel and geography. The book also encourages an interest in design and architecture (looking at the Taj Mahal, described as the most beautiful building on earth), mythology and culture (Uluru and Easter Island), archaeology (Petra) and a variety of other areas.
