Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Tales from the Rushmore Kid.

Thinking about curriculum with today's selection -- "If Maps Could Talk: using symbols and keys" by Erika Shores.

It isn't the maps that talk here.  A bird by the name of Ace McCaw leads the readers through the text, photographs and drawings.  Young readers are introduced to basic map skills and are acquainted with terms such as compass rose, scale, and map keys as McCaw narrates a look into a variety of maps.  Simple examples and engaging activities round out the volume.
