Welcome to Countries A-Z!

The purpose of this book is to give you, the reader, a glimpse of each country in the world. It can be thought of as a coffee table book, or a children's book. Each page in the book contains:

  • a small locator map of where the country is on the globe
  • the name of the country in English
  • the names of the country in its native languages (tip: hover your computer mouse over the name to find out what language it is in)
  • a large image of the country (this is the central feature of the page)
  • some basic information about the country, like what its capital city is and what continent it is on
  • a link to the Wikipedia and Wikivoyage articles on the country
  • a "further reading" section

After you have looked at the page, click on the link in the upper right hand corner (it will say the name of the next country) and continue on to the next page.
