Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-5- Ace McCaw, an outspoken cartoon bird, guides readers through basic map concepts and skills. Language throughout the books is casual and fun. Examples involving familiar places, such as a library and a neighborhood, will be easy for children to understand. Great activity ideas are provided, including creating a homemade compass and drawing topographical maps of students' faces. Some topics are complicated by nature and will require additional explanation. Illustrations feature a wide variety of maps and symbols.-Amanda Moss, Maywood Elementary School, Monona, WI
