About the Author:

Melanie Waldron worked in children's publishing for many years before becoming a full-time author. She has written many non-fiction books for young people and specializes in science and geography topics.

From Booklist:

Despite society’s growing reliance on GPS systems, the attractive Let’s Get Mapping! series emphasizes this still important life skill. Large full-color photos and, of course, maps galore complement the accessible text. How to Read a Map identifies and describes such map components as titles, symbols, a compass rose, contour lines, and latitude and longitude. It explains various ways to read maps, such as using bar scales to determine distance and grid lines to pinpoint positions. Sidebars across the series offer interesting map-related facts, such as how a map was used to track down the source of a cholera epidemic in the 1800s, while a concluding activity reinforces comprehension. These useful books will keep students pointed in the right direction. Grades 3-5. --Angela Leeper
