Listen to learn all about physical maps!

Critic Reviews

"These volumes introduce readers to the wonder and value of maps. Their strongest elements are the well-chosen examples of different types of maps found in each. Each book defines a map type; summarizes its developmental history; discusses basic cartographic terms, such as scale, legend, and compass roses; and explains how it depicts important data with real-world applications. Chapters combine clear prose and examples on almost every page to describe and illustrate cartographic and informational concepts. A concluding 'Are You a Whiz at...?' activity requires readers to use maps to complete several steps in order to plan a trip or adventure. Appealing photos of people and places are a plus. VERDICT: A recommended series to help students appreciate the language and importance of maps." (School Library Journal, Series Made Simple)
