Mapping My Day
Flora loves to draw, and loves drawing maps. She takes us through her day, drawing a map or diagram for everything that happens. It's a story told in maps, an atlas of her life!
Each of Flora's maps illustrates key mapping concepts (like scale, cardinal directions, compass rose, routes, landmarks). Readers will be inspired to create their own maps and diagrams to tell their own stories.
Learn more about spatial thinking and the importance of kids drawing maps in the note at the back of the book. Ask for it at your local bookstore, request it at your public library, or buy it using the buttons below.

This book makes these things so much easier to learn by bringing these ideas to a level that kids can understand—their own lives…. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
Mapping My Day is an original and very highly recommended addition to family, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections.
