Every once in a while a book is published that amazes you and leaves you in awe from cover to cover. Currently, that special book is Maps by authors and illustrators Aleksandra Mizielińska and Daniel MizielińskiMaps is anything but ordinary and is not your typical geography lesson.  It is so much more than that.  It features 52 different maps of the world and includes so many thoughtful details: interesting geographic elements, monuments, native animals, natural resources, national gastronomy, aspects of culture and much more.  I like how there are children featured with typical names in each country and Avery likes seeing the different foods and dishes that are eaten in each country.  This book is a great introduction to world geography and a wonderful way to engage children with the world around them.

Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending us this book!
