For me a journey begins with a map. I like to look at an overview and then the details. I like all kinds of maps – physical, political, topographical, climatic, thematic, and good old road maps.
I was excited to find a series of books that celebrate journeys written by Martha Day Zschock and published by Applewood Books. They are perfect for the A to Z Challenge since they are written in an A to Z format. Each is book is “narrated” by a local bird who shares maps, wildlife, activities, and information about all the things that make each place special. Other books in the series include New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
We loved seeing the duckling statues when we were in Boston! Make Way for Ducklings is one of our favorite books around here.
