Grade 2-4?Designed as a basic introduction to the subject, this book contains enough information to make it a satisfying first look into the world of maps and globes. The text has an anecdotal quality that makes it quite accessible to the intended audience. Lively analogies are used when defining terminology such as key, scale of miles, longitude, and latitude, and in discussing the significant historical role maps have played. Simple, childlike illustrations effectively unite with the text to bring the fascinating subject into focus. The vitality of the original English text is retained in this translation.?Marisa Parish, New York Public Library
