    World Travel Atlas 10th Edition

    Current statistics tell us that as many as 54% of British children cannot point to Canada on a map.

    In the modern society we live in can we really be sure that when our children watch the news and hear of events unfolding in far off countries that they really know where the country or province in question is? Today, we are more integrated and multi cultural then ever before, so it is even more important that we help our children learn and understand more about the world around them.

    How do the 25 nations of assorted sizes meld their very different economies to the benefit of all and the disadvantage of none?

    In a recent survey it was found that a worrying amount of us had no idea how many countries are in the European Union and hardly anyone was able to name all of them that are. If we are not able to how can we expect our children to know?
