As flies the crow as the old saying goes - readers follow that crow; a stream; a long and winding road and other animals and landmarks along the way. At the close of each journey is a small map. Each map is joined by becoming an amalgamation of a large map that incorporates each such trip. It gives a Gesthalt image that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and to visualize an entire geographic area that is made up of these connecting landmarks.
I like maps, in general, and I liked this book for assisting me to teach him how to think about one's situation in space, how to determine directions, and how to think about the symbolic representation of large areas on a small page, and envisioning action along a path, with the codes of maps.
My kid didn't have the best sense of direction. This helped him to become more aware of the importance of finding one's way in new territory, and the importance of seeing it in his mind's eye. Now he can read a backpacking map and envision in order prepare for the terrain. This book was a first step on the educational path of teaching him how to do that.

This book is a great companion to Me on the Map. It's a nice lesson in perspective, illustrating that we all share the same space, but see it very differently. Read morePublished on September 18, 2010 by teaching3rdgrade
