Lisa and her dog, Penny, learn the basics of mapmaking in this delightful sequel to Measuring Penny
Lisa's class is learning how to make maps. The teacher says they can make maps of anyplace, so Lisa starts with her bedroom. She includes all the things that people will need to read the map, such as a scale and a key to the symbols she has used.
Her dog, Penny, helps with the map. This gives Lisa an idea: Why not map Penny's world? Making maps is so much fun that Lisa and Penny decide to visit some of the exotic places that they've drawn-but they won't forget to take a map along!
Now available in paperback, this engaging sequel to the bestselling Measuring Penny will delight teachers and students alike.
