"This well-organized title explores basic concepts in a clear and interesting fashion. It discusses a number of different types of maps and will serve as a great tool for demonstrating a variety of geographic concepts (landforms, bodies of water, weather, and climate). Each two- to three-page chapter addresses a different topic ("The Magnetic Poles," "Weather Maps," "The Continents") and includes an activity or experiment that will allow readers to extend their understanding through concrete application. A list of necessary materials and step-by-step instructions for each activity are provided. Sidebars provide additional information. Clear black-and-white illustrations support the text and activities and the glossary is comprehensive. This title will provide support to geography lessons and suggestions for science-fair experiments." School Library Journal
