What Kind of Book is Maps

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
7.0 / 7.0

This is not a book to sit down and read–it’s a book to spend hours poring over and exploring. The illustrations are fun and informative, making it a great way to let even young children dive into world geography. My three-year-old daughter loves to look at the maps on her own and ask questions about them. We also love looking at them together–especially maps of places we have lived or visited. This is an ideal first atlas to have in your home.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.5 / 7.0

As implied by the publisher description, this is not a “sit-down and read” book, but it is a lovely “sit-down and explore” book filled with super interesting maps that are illustrated with trademark animals, landmarks, people cities, and interesting tid-bits about each country or continent shown. What a cool reference book!
