The Usborne Children’s World Atlas: Internet Linked – We have had this one since the kids were little; I like how sturdy and kid-friendly it is. It’s only available used on Amazon, but it’s a keeper.
National Geographic Student World Atlas – National Geographic atlases always have the best pictures! No surprise there, is it?
United States Atlases:
Rand McNally 2016 Large Scale Road Atlas – Yes, a road atlas counts!
National Geographic Kids United States Atlas – Another National Geographic atlas, this one just for the U.S. of A.
The Penguin Historical Atlas of Ancient Civilizations – Ancient History study, anyone? For any kind of classical approach, you’ll start at the beginning with the ancients.
Rand McNally’s Historical Atlas of the World – After the ancients, this historical world atlas will come in handy.
Historical Atlas of the United States: With Original Maps – Of course, once you get to American History, you’ll need something focused on the United States.
The Student Bible Atlas – This one is very simple, a good basic Bible atlas to have on hand. We bought ours when we got to The Mystery of History, Volume 2.
Zondervan Atlas of the Bible – If you want to dig further into a Bible atlas, you need a “deeper” atlas to dig into! This one is packed with interesting, educational, geographical information.
Holman Bible Atlas: A Complete Guide to the Expansive Geography of Biblical History – Another thorough Bible atlas – this one digging deeper to tie the geography and history together in the bigger picture.
There are so many different kinds of atlases for your homeschool library! (I really had no idea until about two years ago.) Maps, atlases, and other reference books – essentials for our homeschool shelf. I find these so interesting now that I’m an adult. 😉
