Maps 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.
