Barefoot Books World Atlas {Book of the week}

When I won my lovely Britmums Award I was especially excited about the Barefoot Books World Atlas in my bag. And so were my children. They have been exploring it nearly every day since. It is such a beautiful atlas with lovely illustrations and flaps to lift up. It's the kind of book that will grow with my children and as the years pass they will continue to get new things from it.


Time and place are such huge concepts for children to grasp but having an atlas to flick through helps children to ask questions, find answers and realise the World is a big and exciting place to be and explore.


We also have family and friends in countries around the World, so it's lovely to talk to them about those places and read about what it's like to live there.

In addition to the book we were very quick to download the Barefoot Books Atlas App on our iPad. Oh wow. Hands down the best App we have got for the children. My husband cried happy tears when he watched our daughter play with it one evening. I think that may be the best review I can ever give for an App and it works so beautifully in conjunction with the book.

I highly recommend both! And if you haven't got any Barefoot Books in your collection yet then please take a look at their site. We've been loving their books for the past few years and they are definitely all high up there in our favourites.

Thank you Barefoot Books for the beautiful gift. x
