And both kids have really developed their map reading skills thanks in part to some of the books I review below.

There’s a Map in my Lap!

Here are a few great reads for kids about worldwide adventures, creating their own maps and learning the basics of cartography in an easy to read format. These five books are a fun way to introduce young kids to the diverse world of mapmaking and how they too can become a part of the adventure. In a heartwarming tale about a wee little pig called Henry, kids will be taken on a whirlwind adventure around a barnyard as Henry tries to put all of his farm companions in order. Henry is quite a particular pig who likes rhythm and reason; when the barnyard becomes a messy disaster he takes his companions and your child on a trip to map out where they all belong. An easy read for young kinds, this understandable story will make them laugh and teach them a little something about maps along the way. Written by Tish Rabe and illustrated in the style of Dr. In Mapmaking with Children, kids and adults will go through a relatively easy elementary introduction to mapmaking and cartography.
