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. As the title suggests, Types of Maps looks at a variety of maps, including political, physical, topographical, pictorial, statistical, and weather, as well as the differences between flat maps and globes and between historical and modern maps. 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
