Meet Flora, a precocious little girl who loves drawing, especially drawing maps - of her buried treasure, the breakfast table, the route to school, and more! Follow Flora and her family as she takes us through her day with maps.

Learning to read and draw maps is a fun and interactive way for children to develop spatial thinking skills - how we think about and understand the world around us and use concepts of space for problem solving. Early exposure to map concepts can help foster this type of cognitive development in children and boost their math and science learning as they progress through school.

Includes a Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Professionals with more information about maps and spatial concepts, as well as questions, games, and activities designed to encourage children's map-building skills.

About the Author:

Julie Dillemuth, PhD, was mystified by maps until she figured out how to read them and make them, and it was a particularly difficult map that inspired her to become a spatial cognition geographer. She writes children's books in Santa Barbara, California, where the west coast faces south. Contact her on her website.

About the Illustrator:

Laura Wood is an independent illustrator currently living in the wonderful city of Bristol, UK. Her work can be found in picture books, educational publications, and digital apps as well as editorial publications. By day, she spends her time in her studio bringing stories to life. By night, she likes to put on her dancing shoes and swing dance under the stars. She is proudly represented by the lovely people at Good Illustration Agency.
