A Travel Book Mini: A Journey Through Every Country In The World is truly that. This book has 217 maps covering 230 countries. All 888 pages are stocked with wonderful pictures that truly make you want to go out to visit these countries. There is information about each country (like the best time to visit New Zealand is from November to April), places you must see (in Qatar, that would be ancient fort at Al-Zubara), and media information about the places (listen to Dvorak who is from Czech to learn about that country). They also have summary called In A Word (Brrrr! for Greenland), trademarks (Morocco’s trademark is mint tea), and interesting information that would surprise you (For Iraq, the garden of Eden is said to be located here).
If you have kids, they will love this book. My 4 and 1 year old like to flip through it. They make up stories about the pictures for us. This book would also make an excellent geography lesson for us all (but I can definitely see it being used by homeschoolers!). That being said, this book is great for travelers of any age.
