I like the way Joan Sweeney starts with, "This is me" and builds the concept through "my room," "my house," "my street," and on to town, state, country and the world. Then she goes backwards until she concludes with "...everybody has their own special place on the map. Just like me."
If you like this book, try also: Me and My Family Tree.
* sequences and patterns (each page follows the same template, expanding from the room to the world)
* spacial rotation and visualization (a map is a view from above)
* abstract represntation (a map is a schematic view, a model, of the objects it represents)
* permancence, presistence, and the transient nature of objects and their location (what should be on the map? - toys, books, socks?)
