Gr 2-4--The series is about maps, how they are created, and how to read and use them successfully. A table of contents followed by what a map is, why it is used, and the importance of knowing the symbols, keys, and scale. Vocabulary words are in bold in short paragraphs of text that are accompanied by a color picture. The broad spectrum of maps are shown and described, such as physical, political, road, and how maps can be presented: either paper, electronic/digital, and globe. A map activity is in each title that has readers answer questions by using a map. The back matter includes a glossary, reading more/internet sites, and an index. While the series is very specific, it offers real world skill building and more understanding for other subjects, like history or science that use maps to impart more information. VERDICT A comprehensive guide for elementary readers about every aspect of maps.Copyright 2022 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
