School Library Journal

“Good examples of beginning narrative nonfiction that includes well-explained hands-on activities.” —School Library Journal


“The subject heading for these books is cartography, and these map-making directions are indeed simple enough for a new reader…. These work best read together to reinforce the concepts and give children ideas for things they can map themselves.” —Booklist
