#TuesdayReviewsDay: ‘Big City Atlas,’ by Maggie Li

This week, Book Boy Jr. and I have been travelling around the world with this excellent ‘Big City Atlas.’ Open the books and join Penguin on a tour of 28 captivating cities.


Book Boy Jr loved the combination of interestingly illustrated maps of each city, featuring some of the main landmarks, accompanied by fact boxes dotted around the outside. The layouts were uncluttered and contained the perfect amount of reading for young globetrotters to absorb.

There’s plenty to spot and enjoy on every page. Some have special ‘find it’ challenges where readers are invited to hunt for certain landmarks or hidden details. And of course, Penguin is there guiding you every step of the way.


A good range of cities are represented – you’ve got the big-hitters like Moscow, London and New York, but also some less usual picks such as Seoul or Dublin.

This book is a great introduction to some of the most historic and impressive cities of our world.  I’d recommend these for readers aged 7+

Library Girl.
