The World Book


Where would you like to visit next? The World Book enables readers to take a tour of every single country in the world.  It is packed with facts, stats and flags.  This wonderful resource explores different cultures and the best things to see, do and taste on this planet. Find out how to say ‘good morning’ in Maltese, the most popular dishes in Colombian cuisine, and where you can see over 60 species of hummingbird. Seek out the tallest mountain, the longest river, and everything in between.

Rather than being an atlas, this title works more like an almanac of fascinating information, containing geography, history, food, sport, wildlife, art and culture.  It’s a wonderful gift to encourage interest in visiting different places and experiencing different cultures, and a special addition to home and school libraries.

The World Book

Joe Fullman, illustrated by Rose Blake

(Welbeck Books) – hardback

The World Book is a fabulous addition to guides to the world. Sometimes it is difficult to know where to start when young readers want to find out more about geography. The World Book makes it easy and so pleasurable.
The book is a fantastic resource on the customs, symbols, histories and identities of the 199 countries explored.  Every country in the world is included and it is so accessible. The brief descriptions and informations provided enable an accurate snap shot of the country and its people.
The book stands out from other atlases in that there is little mapping, but more helpful are the abundant colourful illustrations that portray each nation. Dig a little deeper and the detailed short paragraphs that zoom in on particular facts and figures provide substance to the uniqueness of the place.
The book is also strong in its sense of equality and the way in which bigger nations do not dominate.  St Kitts and Nevis, for example, enjoys as much space as Greece, while there is as much to learn about Canada as there is the USA. The World Book is a triumph in how it neatly and simply explains the world.  It would be a super gift and an excellent addition to home (and school) libraries.
The World Book is the perfect companion to The Earth Book, also available in the Bookwagon on line bookstore.
