"Where in the world do people live? How did they get there? What do they eat? What do they wear? Why are some like me and some different?" Children are full of questions about other places and the people who live in them. The People Atlas, a clearly written, beautifully illustrated survey ofhuman life around the world, gives them many of the answers. In 64 pages of text, maps, and full-color pictures, The People Atlas shows how human beings spread around the world, outlines their different languages, traditions, and life-styles, and explains the impact they have had on the world around them. Combining a continent-by-continent survey withspecial sections that compare local expressions of the fundamental elements of human culture--food, spoken and written language, clothing, homes and family life, money--the book offers young readers both a ready reference and a compelling stimulus to further thought and deeper understanding. Inaddition, each section features the kind of "fun facts" that children love (the tallest and shortest people on earth, the highest capital, how much rain forest has disappeared since you started reading this sentence), making the main points even more concrete, vivid, and easy to remember. Clear and direct yet richly detailed, The People Atlas is an ideal first reference for children exploring the world's sometimes overwhelming diversity.
