Discover this great collection of atlases for children in French, so that your children can learn about the world while expanding their language skills.

Les grandes routes

A world map retraces thew3 historical routes used to show the economical, cultural and technical exchanges which shaped mentalities and beliefs. And so, your little one can step into Gengis Khan and Marco Polo's shoes to travel through their journey of the Silk Route. For ages 9 and up. 

Comment va le monde ?

This atlas includes 22 maps to answer questions about the world today, taking three different angles: 

  • Today's world (Why do we move to other countries? What is globalization? etc.)
  • Lifestyles (What do others eat? How do they learn? How do they pray? etc.) 
  • The planet's future (Will we one day live without oil? etc.) 

Short explanations answer each question simply. Small illustrations are included in the explanations and then used on the maps, for example: a piggy bank to illustrate rich countries vs. a broken one for poor countries. 

The last map tackles the topic of "solutions to change the world": from a floating dam to clean plastic bags from the oceans, to energy-generating dance floors. A well-thought-out book that is as interesting, as it is inspiring. 

Ages 10 and up.
