Big City Atlas

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Pavilion

Take a whistle-stop tour around 28 of the world’s most amazing cities; soak up the culture, traditions, prominent landmarks and local food experiences with a cheery penguin guide in this bright and engrossing pictorial feast.

With a double-page spread for each city, why not stop off for tortillas and guacamole in Mexico City, pie and mash in London, biltong in Cape Town, pizza and gelato in Rome and sushi in Tokyo?

If you are more interested in local traditions, myths and legends, sporting achievements or stunning buildings and history, don’t worry – there’s plenty in this stunning reference book for you too. Maybe you’d like to know about the grisly diet (and even grislier sacrificial rituals) of the Aztecs, camel beauty contests in Dubai, or the cemeteries in Cairo where many of the poorest families now live? Look no further, this is the book you’ve been waiting for!

This super-accessible trip around the world is presented as pictorial city plans with illustrated places of interest and added text boxes packed with fascinating facts. Children will enjoy poring over the detailed pages and testing their knowledge with ‘find it’ features for younger readers and games and quizzes for older children.
