Me on the Map by Joan Sweeney and Annette Cable

Me on the Map (Dragonfly Books) is a great book that introduces kids to the idea of maps and mapping by using simple language and relatable maps.

The book begins by showing a “map” of a kid’s bedroom, then followed by one showing the location of the room in relation to the rest of the house; ditto the house’s location in relation to the neighbourhood, and so on until it shows a map of the world. The book concludes with: ” Everybody has their own special place on the map. Just like me.”

  1. We borrowed this book from the library before and I liked how it gives a good perspective of the individual in the world. I think it’s hard for kids to fathom beyond their homes, schools, and the perimeter of the places they frequent!
