Children's atlases form a discreet area of publishing in which authors have to balance conflicting demands and needs. The expectation that an atlas will be a comprehensive reference source is set against their use as a teaching resource. Research into the way children devise and interpret world maps adds a further level of complication. This paper draws on the author's own experience as an atlas consultant over a 25 year period to explore some key issues.
