I love this book Me on the Map. It is good book to teach young readers about maps. Educators can incorporate some of the activities the young girl used to represent herself on the map. ( )

A playful introduction to maps that shows an easy way to find places you're familiar with.

This was a very helpful book in rolling out state social studies standards on maps and where children live. The progression from smaller to bigger areas that can be mapped allowed for a guided classroom discussion of the students' own streets, neighborhoods, city, state, and country. The illustrations for supported the text and provided several different examples of important map features. The only drawback with the maps included in the book was that some of the maps had such detailed symbols that the maps did not look much different than the authors rendition of the real world in the book, and this led to some confusion with my students. Nonetheless, an excellent introduction to maps and where people live. ( )

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. Easy-to-read text, bright artwork, and charming details give children a lot to search for and will have them eager to help navigate on the next family vacation.
