Up North and Down South by Doreen Gonzales
Book DescriptionMaps can seem confusing, but they're really just views from above. So who better to guide young readers through the world of maps than Ace McCaw, a geographically gifted parrot who knows how to de-code the language of maps. Big, colourful maps and accompanying photos support exploring the world in spatial terms in this fresh approach to maps. It also includes these features: maps on every spread; illustrated character that serves as a guide to the subject; contextual definitions of unfamiliar words; Fact! Boxes; 'Amazing but True'; hands-on activity; 'Read More' resources; Internet sites; and, the World in Spatial Terms - how to use maps and other geographic representations, tools, and technologies to acquire, process, and report information from a spatial perspective, and how to analyse the spatial organisations of people, places, and environments on the earth's surface.
