I am participating in the A to Z April Blog Challenge which encourages people to write posts on a theme each day (except Sunday) with the alphabet determining each day’s topic. I am on a literary journey looking at maps in children’s books and have reached the midpoint of the challenge. I have far too many choices for the letter Mm since all the books have Maps. So, here are two worth sharing:
The Magic Map
by Mary Graham Bonner (author) and Luxor Price (illustrator)
This rare 1927 book tells the story of a boy who falls asleep over his geography lesson and lands in the Land of the Living Map. The illustrations are bizarre but fascinating (and might lead to bad dreams.)
This is Fat Equator-
Isn’t this a great dedication?
This is another book that should be in every classroom and on map lover’s coffee tables –
by Alexsandra Mizielinske and Daniel Mizielinske (2013 Templar Company Limited)
An oversize collection of 52 detailed maps of counties and continents of the world that should be on every map lover’s coffee table. Click here to read about the process of creating this amazing book which allows you to travel the world without ever leaving your living room.
