Map Books for Children: Intro to Maps Unit Study

If you’re introducing your child to maps, these map books for children will get you going!

Teaching maps and geography to kids helps ground them to where they are in the world and where others live.

I love that when we talk about geography we talk about culture, we talk about the skills of map reading, and we talk about how the world is bigger than just ourselves.

Books about Maps for Kids

Maps are about far more than getting from a to b.

Maps can help children understand and explore both their everyday environment and faraway places.

This summer we took a summer road trip.

My oldest son is finally big enough to sit in the front seat – which meant he was the “navigator.”

Talk about a crash course in really being able to learn how to read maps!
