Welcome to the MFW family.
The Intermediate World Atlas is a great atlas and will be used a lot to find countries and landforms throughout the year. So yes your kids will need it. It is used also to label the maps with for each continent and for some of the research that will done as the 10 year old does some of the World Geo. book pages. I love atlases and have several, and this is one of the best. It has also been a resource that we have used in the following MFW years. We just used it this week to locate the exact spot that the Mississippi head waters start in Minnesota.
Hope that helps you decide.

Just to clarify also that both of these books are scheduled in the T.M. so it would probably be easier to just have the atlases they are selling. If you are buying the package you will not save any money by not getting it and it is only 6.95(less in the package).
Just some more thoughts for using both of the recommended resources.
