Book Review


A family is going on a trip to Texas to see things like the Johnson Space Center or the Alamo. Before they can go, a young boy decides to make a map of Texas to guide them on their trip. He starts by planning all of the places they want to visit. Then, he labels the map with the places they will visit. He adds important symbols and completes the map by creating a key for those symbols. The last few pages of the book include directions for how the reader can make her own state map, fun facts about Texas, and a glossary for important map terminology.
