Everything and Everywhere:
A Fact-Filled Adventure for Curious Globe-Trotters
by Marc Martin
Martin has taken the appeal of infographics and combined it with detailed illustrations to create this fascinating volume overflowing with informational visual delights. It's a luscious "candy store" of world geography and culture. Trivia at its best.
Beginning with Antarctica and circling the globe in a counterclockwise direction, readers explore fifteen locations. Stops include well-known metropolitan cities such as Hong Kong, Moscow, Cairo, New York City, and Rio de Janeiro. Less famous, but equally fascinating are Alice Springs, Ulaahbaatar, Reykjavík, Galápagos Islands, and the Amazon Rainforest.
The generous trim size (10.2 x 13.8 inches) invites students to spread out the volume on a floor space or table top where young readers can gather around and together discover the wonders of the world.
