Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1-2. This little volume from the Rookie Read-About Geography series presents maps and globes. Bredeson points out the difference between an aerial photo and a map, and then briefly discusses map symbols, legends, directions, and scale. The short section on globes explains that the spherical earth is difficult to map on flat paper and shows a few features on globes: the equator and the North and South Poles. Colorful photos and maps illustrate this practical, elementary guide to the subject. --Carolyn Phelan"
