About the Author:

No Bio

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-- In an informal, animated style, Weiss introduces the purpose, varieties, history, and mechanics of maps and map making. Every page offers helpful illustrations, which consist of modern and historical reproductions and single-color diagrams, charts, and cartoons. Map-reading essentials of compass direction, scale, latitude and longitude, altitude, and symbols are explained. The special purpose and appearance of topographic maps, marine charts, and different projections are also discussed. In the final chapter, readers are invited to make maps of their neighborhoods, using a simple list of tools and following step-by-step instructions that reinforce the cartographic methodology described throughout the book. This an enthusiastic, accessible, and motivating presentation that fills a gap for middle-grade readers whose informational needs fall between Ray Broekel's Maps and Globes (Childrens, 1983) and Helen Carey's more detailed, well-referenced How to Use Maps and Globes (Watts, 1983; o.p.). --Gerry Larson, Chewning Junior High School, Durham, NC
