  • I initially ordered this book to introduce the concept of maps to our children, and I loved the idea of it, as it explores both conventional maps a bedroom, local environment and then abstract ideas, like a map of a heart However, while the illustrations are thought provoking and colourful, they are quite chaotic I think older children would appreciate this , as it can be a little unclear So i d say perhaps this book could be a four star rating if read to older children, but I m only giving it [...]


  • Many maps of things important to a child neighborhood, family, tummy, dog, etc This would be a great creative writing prompt or art project Reviewers have mentioned it is chaotic, but I think it reads very true to a child s mind The occasional extra detail in words or pictures helps to show what is most important to this child.


  • Chaos While it might be a fun introduction to maps in geography, I feel like this text would be far too stressful for any SEN children.


  • I was entranced by the cover and idea of this book, but after reading it through slowly and carefully with my little one, I ve decided that they allowed the illustrator to tip over the edge a bit on this one The idea is awesome all sorts of maps of things that a kid would encounter a map of lunch, of the day, of the neighborhood, of the family dog, etc Very fun things to make maps of But, the actual illustrations are so chaotic and all over the place, that I noticed my five year old was complete [...]


  • Every K 6 teacher should have this book in their writing classroom This book ties in so nicely with ideas that a Penn State writing professor shared with district teachers a couple years ago The book is a collection of maps that trace a child s thinking in order to generate ideas for writing Some of the maps include heart map, neighborhood map, map of my family, map of my day, map of my face, map of my dog, map of my room Great book to show how ideas are all around us


  • I loved the illustrations in this story however found it quite difficult to read to children The idea of using it to support early introductions to maps is nice, I particularly enjoyed the map of the heart So with my own class I would be perhaps tempted to use individual pages of the story rather than the whole book It could be used to show different types of maps or to mind map ideas for a given topic However it is a lovely book that older children would be able to read comfortably.


  • I use this book when teaching personal narrative writing in my class We all make a Map of our Hearts brainstorming things we love Then we use those ideas for story starters The students also made their own maps of their rooms, of their houses, of the classroom, of their pet etc It was a ton of fun


  • i want to be sara fanelli when i grow up and become a children s authorilliant brilliant brilliantults with a love for quirky, artistic childrens books will get as much out of this as the children it is made for.


  • Playfully illustrated, this book introduces the youngest child to the idea and concept of maps Pictures include maps of a face, a dog, the narrators heart and his family I found the map of my day particular interesting.


  • This is a GREAT book for kids We read the book and made maps of our own It was a big hit It is an interesting way to start a conversation about place space It even has a map of my dog Too cute


  • Can be used with grades 4 9 during Social Studies to teach about Maps This book is about all kinds and types of maps This is a good book to show kids that map making is easy and fun, because they can create maps from important events and experiences.


  • Every spread is a different map The illustrations are pretty rough but interesting for older kids There are not only maps of places but of the family, tummies and the dogA collection of maps provides views of the owner s bedroom, school, playground, and other realms farther away.


  • I like the idea of this book It illustrated many different things with maps But the maps are hard to read It is a little chaotic It might be good for a child 5 or older.



  • This is a book about maps There is a map of his her heart, his her family, daily schedule, and a map of his her tummy We really loved this book K.B.



  • As we explore a very different kind of mapping project, it was nice to get back to the simple things This book made me smile.


  • A good idea for teachers to ask children to draw maps of things that are important to them You mighit like this Solady.


  • We read this book to learn about maps After we read the book, we drew our own maps Some of us drew maps of our neighborhood, school,and bedroom.


  • While it is NOT a good read aloud, My Map Book offers a very interesting conversation starter for children thinking about maps and similar forms of visual representation.


  • Great for taking a look at all of the day to day events in a child s life as a way of generating ideas for writing.



  • Despite the title, this book is really about diagrams and visual representations than a traditional map However, it may still have a valid place in a classroom discussion.
