Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-The uses, symbols, and meanings of maps are explored in this informative easy reader. The Bergers begin their discussion with a blueprint of a house and extend it to a neighborhood, a city, a state, the United States, and the world, differentiating between a globe and a map. The types of climates found at the equator, the poles, and elsewhere in between are also shown. While the facts are kept simple, youngsters will gain an understanding of the many types of maps and how they help people. Quackenbush's clever, colorful cartoons invite readers to trace routes on the individual maps. With the current emphasis on geography skills for children, this title is a welcome, upbeat addition.-Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
