Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Clayton Rowen
Children will delight in the maps found in this book. They look like they were drawn by a child, and they illustrate things of interest to a child. Examples of some of the maps include her tummy, her heart, her family and her bedroom. Youngsters will further enjoy them when they realize that they are drawn from a child's perspective. An added feature is the removable book cover, which folds out into a poster-size map with a back side for the child to make his/her own map.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-A truly unusual offering. There is no story, per se; the book consists of a series of naive, mixed-media, double-page maps that tell a great deal about a child's internal and external life. Fanelli starts with a treasure map, but quickly moves to more familiar territory with "My Bedroom" and "My Family." Activities of a typical daybreakfast, school, lunch, playground, home, supper, story time, and dreamsare divided by broadly painted bands of color. The map of "My Neighborhood" is perhaps the most straightforward, showing home in relation to school, the river, and the playground. Others range from "My Heart" the child's parents are there, as well as sunny days and chocolate to "My Face" and "My Dog." The cover unfolds to a poster-sized map with a list of items to find and questions to answer. The other side provides a canvas for "My Own Map," inviting readers to take off on personal explorations. An imaginative, child-centered title that should be examined and enjoyed, and one that will also make a wonderful springboard for teachers introducing the concepts of mapping or autobiography.Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
