Citation by: Sarah Tyler Type of Reference: Geographical Reference Call Number: 912.73 B7911n 2012 Content/Scope: This atlas provides information and trivia on all fifty states and the nation’s capital, which is explained as an independent federal district. The “How to Use This Atlas” section states that information and trivia have been collected for eight specific sections, “State Facts, Boyer, C. (2012). National Geographic kids ultimate U.S. road trip atlas. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic. Citation by: Sarah Tyler Type of Reference: Geographical Reference Call Number: 912.73 B7911n 2012 Content/Scope: This atlas provides information and trivia on all fifty states and the nation’s capital, which is explained as an independent federal district. The “How to Use This Atlas” section states that information and trivia have been collected for eight specific sections, “State Facts,” which includes the state bird, flower, animal, and tree, “State Nickname,” an introductory overview paragraph, “Traffic Laws/Silly Signs/Fantastic Facts,” “Boredom Busters,” interesting items to look for while traveling through the state, “Roadside Attractions,” a map of the state with its capital marked with a star, and “5 Cool Things,” places that must be visited while in the given state. Accuracy/Authority/Bias: Founded in 1888, the National Geographic Society is one of the world’s largest non-profit scientific and educational organizations, according to a paragraph on the publisher on the back page; the author provides attribution for all of the photographs used in the book on a full-page entry entitled “Photo Credits.” Fifteen individuals are listed on that page as having served in various capacities, such as “map researcher and production manager,” “legal and business affairs,” and “assistant editor;” users can trust the information to be accurate and authoritative, because of the publisher and staff. The book is also unbiased because each state has its own two-page entry and includes information and trivia in all of the five sections mentioned in the book’s “How to Use” section. Arrangement/Presentation: This atlas moves from the big picture to snapshots, since it starts with a map showing the interstates across the country. It begins with Washington, D. C., as the nation’s capital, and proceeds through the fifty states in alphabetical order. The overall format helps students find specific information quickly because sections are typically in the same places regardless of entry. Relation to Other Works: Since this collection does not have an atlas of the United States, this volume will be its first. The atlas loosely complements the 2000 Questions and Answers Encyclopedia: The USA by providing geographical information. The two-page entry on Kentucky presents information specifically geared towards children in an appealing format, adding to the 1994 Kentucky: The Bluegrass State. Accessibility/Diversity: Recommended for students in third through fifth grade, this United States atlas is accessible to younger elementary students with adult support. It offers state trivia and fun facts, which can engage reluctant readers, gifted and talented students, and special education students. These students may also enjoy the twelve full-page activities, such as seek and find drawings, which are included to help pass time during a road trip with answer keys. This atlas helps students learn about the states of their country and would be useful to students conducting research who require “interesting” facts. A three-page index increases students' ability to find needed information independently and quickly. Cost: $14.90 Professional Review: Peters, J. (2012).

Relevance and Relationship: Once again, I choose this book because the library I worked in only had adult versions. This version is simple and easy to understand for students. Part of social studies standards is to learn the different types of maps. A simple road map would help the students learn how to use navigation skills. Purpose: The purpose of the book is to help the students learn about the US. The book teaches map skills, it also contains different facts and different attractions that you can see in different spots in the US. Validity: The book was also published by the National Geographic Society. They have been publishing there magazine and other resources for many years. This book is up to date being published in 2012. Format: Print Reference- Atlas Arrangement and Presentation: This atlas has 128 pages. It is also in full color and has games and puzzles to go with the different road maps. There is an index in the back of the book to make the book easier to navigate. Diversity: Even though the book is about different places in the US, students will still be able to see different cultures around our own nation. The book will appeal to visual learners for the pictures and graphics.

I believe this informational book is a very good resource for students. There are several fun facts for each state; there are pictures to compare the “cool-things” to and it well designed. It has a glossary, index, reference section and even a “how to work this book” part. This book is written exceptionally well and should be used in classrooms to learn about states and give ideas of fun things to do in each state!

    Twin text 1 This book is a favorite of my kids when we go on road trips. It suggests different places for them to visit in each state; some of which may not be well known but are worth the time to visit. It also has activities and car games for them to do as well. The best thing is they give us the directions and learn how to read a map. I paired this book with the fictional Dora the Explorer at the Carnival. On a much simpler version, Dora also uses a map.

The best thing is they give us the directions and learn how to read a map. I paired this book with the fictional Dora the Explorer at the Carnival. On a much simpler version, Dora also uses a map. When we went to Florida the youngest wasn't quite able to read the detailed map from the Atlas. We added sticky notes on the map that Dora used so they could feel as if they were reading their own map. That being said I would put the National Geographic at the age range of 6 and older and Dora for the younger audience of 5 or younger.

    National Geographic Kids Ultimate U.S. Road Trip Atlas by Crispin Boyer – This book took quite a long time for my son and I to read through. We read about a US state each day and then enjoyed the extra activities throughout. Interesting to read what is thought to be special about states I’ve lived in.
