Discover the countries of the world--exploring their geography, wildlife, traditions, and arts--in this picture-packed children's book.
Every country profile is full of photos, and each nation has a full-color map detailing its main cities, landscape features, and borders, and exactly where in the world they are. At-a-glance panels provide a quick reference to all the stats, and the easy-to-read text is full of fascinating, fun facts.

Find out about anything from the spookily vibrant Day of the Dead parade in Mexico and the beautiful springtime cherry blossom displays of Japan, to blueberry picking in Sweden and India's space program.
