Synopses & Reviews
Maps and Mapping introduces different types of maps and helps children understand how they work. Young map makers will learn about compass points, map keys and scales, colors and contours, and will discover how reading maps can yield a wealth of information about both the natural and man-made world.
Glossy paper makes the photographs and map reproductions look terrific in this concept book for elementary-age readers....While this covers some of the same material as Harriett Barton's venerable but still useful Maps & Globes (HarperCollins, l985), it does so in a more inviting format which would appeal to younger readers.
