This was to be a part of the curriculum for my sons and it was good at explaining a lot of things, but seriously it is still a bit too outdated.

Written for 7-10 year olds, this colorful book introduces young readers to the basics of maps and globes, such as a map's uses, direction, the equator, scale, legends, latitude, longitude, elevation and the difference between physical and political maps. Illustrations are simple, colorful and informative.

Well done.

Perfect, thank you!

An excellent, informative story about maps and globes. Perfect for my third grade class.

While written for youth, this is a very good introduction to maps. It is especially useful because it informs young readers that maps are not always accurate. The historic discussion helps to bring students to the present in terms of how maps, in general, evolved. Comparison of globes and flat maps is very instructive. I would have
said more about the utility of Mercator and similar maps (especially rhumb lines, shortest distances), but the Greenland/South America discussion is on target. I would have included another map -- the Western and Eastern Hemisphere and related cartographic data to Old and New World -- it introduces what young students will learn in later classes. Measurement on maps is effectively dealt with, but it is important to distinguish
the 'naturalness' of the Equator from the 'arbitrariness' of the Prime Meridian. Nice coverage of South America, but it might be more useful to put the pair of maps opposite each other. Authors should avoid referring to the land area as 'dry' land. It could be confusing. Imre Sutton, retired prof., geography, Cal. State Univ., Fullerton.

Cover had a chunk out of it, but delivery was timely. Wish I didn't pay as much as I did, could have found a book like that at a garage sale for .25 cents!
This is a great intro for kids about 6 or so, to learn about maps & globes. It discusses the history as well as functions. Bought to go with an electronic globe for grandson turning 6 and very curious.
