Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A girl explains maps, beginning with her bedroom and expanding to a map of the world. "Sweeney encourages the cartographer in every child," said PW. Ages 4-8. (July)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2A nameless child introduces the world of cartography. Using the premise that simple drawings can be maps, the book begins with crayon drawings of the floor plans of the girl's room and house. The concept becomes progressively more complex, as her horizons expand from home to street, to town, to state, to country, and finally to the world. Colorful illustrations show a composite of the entire area that is being charted on the facing page. On each successive page, the child points out her street, hometown, state, and country. The process then reverses as she finds the U.S. on a world map and works back down the scale to her own room again. The text concludes with the statement that "...everybody has their own special place on the map." Not an essential purchase, but one that could be useful for teaching basic skills at the primary level.Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
