Reading maps doesn’t have to be boring. In fact it could be an invitation to an adventure and if you choose the ‘Atlas of Adventures’ by Lucy Letherland, then you are sure to have some wonderful time travelling with your finger on the map through some of the most exciting places on Earth while sitting comfortably in your armchair. With ‘Atlas of Adventures’ you could try to learn to steer a gondola in Venice, go to sleep under the Northern Lights or try dog sledding with Malamutes in Alaska. The book is filled with lots and lots of interesting facts of natural wonders, exciting experiences and fun festivities from all around the world. It has some really interesting, original and beautiful illustrations, showing the famous and the not-so-well-known places, and you can learn as much from just looking at the pictures, as from reading the text. ‘Atlas of Adventures’ is a great fun for all little explorers curious of the world around them. It is sure to make them want to go and see and do things for themselves, so don’t be surprised if after reading, or rather exploring the Atlas, the kids would ask you to go snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef…
