Anyone have any suggestions for a living book or world atlas that could be used for a pre-K/K?

My son is absolutely fascinated with maps and geography

We have several around here since my son also loves geography - all packed still (we just moved!). None of them are my "favorite" or "ideal". I was hoping others would post suggestions.

I'd like to see something that has less *clutter* of information and more real information - with real pictures (no cartoon styles). I've not found the perfect ones, but when I get unpacked, I'll share the titles of the best of what we have.

That sounds exactly what I am looking for too!
Thanks for sharing what you have. We moved a few months ago, still have boxes! :) So, know what you are going thru!

I find that just going into the bookstore and looking at the Children's atlases helps :) I picked up a cheap one though, because I decided that Google Earth and the library could do most of the rest ;)

Ok, I got some things unpacked AND I just got my hands on another atlas I like:

Our almost favorite initial one is from First Discovery (Scholastic puts them out - the ones with clear pages that when turned change the pictures...): Atlas of People (I've seen other geography ones as well, but don't have them).

The one I saw today that I just fell in love with is "National Geographic Student Atlas of the World" which I think could be used from Preschool for basic information through probably 4th or 5th grade at least. The one I saw today was published in 2001 (there may be others???), and I thought it was comprehensive in its topics without going too far in depth (not overwhelming for young ones). The photos (to state the obvious) are the most beautiful I've seen in just about any atlas.

I'll be looking for that one on Ebay or elsewhere.
