About the Author:

Noted poet Lee Bennett Hopkins has edited or authored numerous books for children, including the I Can Read Books Hamsters, Shells, and Spelling Bees; A Pet for Me: Poems; and the ALA Notable Children's Book Surprises. The recipient of a Christopher Award and the University of Southern Mississippi's Medallion for "lasting contributions to children's literature," Mr. Hopkins lives in Florida.



Philip Stanton is the director of his own design studio, which produces everything from large-scale urban art installations to multimedia projects for movies, television, and the internet. He is the award-winning illustrator of numerous picture books published in Europe. Got Geography! is his first book to be published in the United States. He grew up in Florida and now lives with his family in Barcelona, Spain.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Hopkins celebrates the excitement of travel, and the maps that help chart the way, in this geography-themed, picture-book collection of poetry. Mostly familiar poets--among them, Jane Yolen and Kristine O'Connell George--contribute selections that vary widely in sophistication. Younger children may not understand some of the references, as in these lines from J. Patrick Lewis' "Mapping the World": "I traced Australia's seamless land-- / Dreamtime of aborigines, / A walkabout through scrub and sand." In addition, the brightly colored, full-spread acrylic paintings, which suggest an elementary-age audience, seem at odds with the more sophisticated selections. Still, many poems present concepts with playful accessibility. Kathryn Madeline Allen speaks in the boastful voice of the equator: "I clearly am . . . the only one--who / splits the globe in half." And Carl Sandburg makes concepts instantly relevant: "When you dance, it is the / North Pole or the South Pole pulling . . . like / magnets to keep your feet on the earth. / And that's why we got geography." Suggest this for use across the curriculum. Gillian Engberg
