    People have been curious about the lay of the land for thousands of years. Children are naturally curious about the world around them. This book brings the world to your child through very readable narrative and activities they can try with a friend or teacher. The author is enthusiastic and encourages kids to use their imagination to really explore maps and charts of their city, state and beyond. There are many pictures and of course lots of maps in this black and white book. Several experiments for kids to do like putting the four-color theory to the test and measuring the slope of a hill are all very doable and practical. You learn how maps have been made through the centuries and where place names come from. I got so many ideas for unit studies from this book: geology, geography, climate, war history (the Mason-Dixon line for example,) civil engineering, railroads, western expansionism, sailing, or simply planning a vacation. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
