Children's LiteraturePart of the "Rookie Read-About Geography" series for early readers, this book brings a hands-on approach to the skill of calculating distance between two points on a map. Large print, minimal text, phonetic spelling and colorful maps and photos combine to entice early elementary students into learning this often confusing skill. The text explains things simply and relates perfectly with accompanying illustrations. Readers are asked to interact with the text by practicing their measuring skills, making the book useful for either reading center activities or small- and large-group activities. New vocabulary is repeated in the "Words You Know" section at the end of the book. The one interactive question about the zoo animals seems confusing since there are no measuring skills involved. 2003, Children's Press, Ages 7 to 9.
