Title: My Map Book
Author: Sara Fanelli
Why I Love This Book: This simple book is perfect for helping young kids to think about different kinds of maps. The text and illustrations are presented as if they were created by a child. I think this approach makes it especially engaging to kids, and is a perfect backdrop for text-based connections. I also love the variety and creativity of maps used, from the "Map of My Bedroom" to a "Map of My Day" to the "Map of My Heart." This book is a great addition to a study of maps in the classroom, and could easily be used with students throughout the primary grades.
