More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
While political maps show how the world is divided by borders and a physical map shows where various natural and manmade features of the world are located, atlases and globes go a step further. Not only does an atlas provide detailed maps of an area, it also provides information about what places are more populated, what languages are spoken there, and what types of food are produced in the region. A globe gives one a three-dimensional map of the world, showing where specific countries or cities are in relation to other regions, which gives a good indication of the type of weather one would find at specific locations. Obviously, atlases and globes are valuable sources of information for travelers as they pack and plan for an upcoming trip. With this middle reader, a part of the “All Over the Map” series, elementary students can learn how to read an atlas and a globe by learning their common language. One section of this book provides a complete map toolkit and legend, which displays the symbols used on an atlas and their corresponding interpretations. Learning how to use the scales to measure the distance on these maps is another section. Like all the books in this series, the maps and pictures are not only colorful but they also provide additional information to the text. Various map facts are scattered throughout, and a research activity is provided at the end that allows readers to put their new map skills to the test. Overall, this book is an excellent educational resource that would be a good supplement to a geography lesson or unit. Reviewer: Justina Engebretson; Ages 7 to 10.
