A child describes how her room, her house, her town, her state, and her country become part of a map of her worldPublishers Description
Illustrated in full color. In this playful introduction to maps and geography, step by simple step, a young girl shows readers herself on a map of her room, her room on the map of her house, her house on the map of her street--all the way to her country on a map of the world. Once the reader is familiar with the maps, she demonstrates how readers can find their own country, state, and town--all the way back to their room--on each colorful map.

|Fabulous book! Jan 10, 2008|
|What a great book. Great pictures. After reading it we sat down and made a map of my 4 year old's room. If only it explained the difference between living out in the country (like on a farm) and living in a different country (like China or Australia). But I can't complain. We love it!|
|Great beginning map placement for kids Dec 16, 2007|
|I homeschool and this is an excellent book for teaching elementary school kids their "place" on the map. It starts with a girl mapping her room and extends all the way to her place on the globe and back again. An excellent teaching tool for putting things in perspective! Not enough words to make this a bedtime book, but enough to cause interaction and learning.|
|Me on the Map Mar 14, 2007|
|I use this book in PS and Elem. settings to set up lesson plans related to maps and how they can be used. This book helps children to relate maps to their own environments. |
|Explains Tricky Concepts Jan 6, 2007|
|My daughter is six years old, and it's tough to explain some of the more complex concepts like time and space. This series of books does a great job using colorful illustrations and text that's a lot easier to understand than anything I could come up with myself! Besides, I am a map and globe lover, so this book especially keeps our attention. I also recommend Sweeney's other books, including the one about Time.|
|Not as good as it could be Oct 22, 2006|
|The idea for this book is great, and overall my girls (age 4 and 6) enjoy it. But the book is sloppy about distinguishing country versus continent. And I think the author and illustrator could have done a better job to help kids make the leap from the abstract, 2-D concept of maps and our 3-D world. |
