Despite the Barefoot Books World Atlas' charming illustrations and focus on different cultures across the globe, we decided to remove it due to a high number of reported factual errors. Added When on Earth? because it not only explains interesting historical events (such as the Arab Spring and how agriculture began), but it also presents an excellent opportunity for parent-child bonding, as many adults are sure to learn something from it as well. The 50 States nabbed the top spot thanks to its abundance of clearly-conveyed information and compelling visuals. You'll also find the Atlas of Animal Adventures and the Space Atlas for the critter and astronomy lovers in your life, as well as a pop-up selection (My Pop-Up World Atlas) that's great for tots who are just beginning to read and need a bit of extra stimulus.
