Interactive Atlas Gives Childred Virtual Travel

My First Amazing World Explorer is an interactive children's atlas that allows students to explore the world through virtual vacations. Children can take a submarine ride through the Indian Ocean; fly to Paris and send a friend a postcard of the Eiffel Tower; take a scuba trip and see coral reefs in the Caribbean; or experience a space shuttle ride at Cape Canaveral in Florida. Over 200 animations, more than 25 engaging activities, 400 narrative pop-ups, 44 full-color scrolling maps and 15,000 text entries make the title a fascinating and long-lived educational tool.
