ALA Booklist
The infographic emerged as the perfect antidote to the clutter of the Internet: simple, creative, appealing representations of complicated subjects. The Super Social Studies Infographics series attempts d largely succeeds extending the concept across several thematic volumes. Though the specific topics covered in each book can be scattershot, they are always helped along by each illustrator's command of what has become the infographic's trademark: tidy, droll, fine-lined charts and graphs that are innately appealing. The best volume is World Geography through Infographics, with its crystal-clear charts of countries' wealth versus population, capitals versus biggest cities, and more. Clarity across the series is inconsistent, but interest levels always remain high.
