This is the new Jr. Classroom Atlas from Rand McNally, updated with the latest information and revitalized with a brand new look and title.
The simplicity of the map art and beautiful photographs make this an excellent choice for the K-3rd grade levels and is the recommended atlas in Galloping the Globe.
It is also the best atlas to use for answering the geography drills questions from the first level trail in Trail Guide to World Geography.
If you are looking for Beginner World Atlas, get this one instead. Beginner World Atlas is out of print, but inside the covers, this one is essentially the same.
