Publisher's Summary

Ever wonder which states are the cloudiest? Or what city gets the most snow? Climate maps can tell you. They show average weather conditions - in your neighborhood, around the world, or even on Mars! But how do you read a climate map? And how are these maps made? Listen to learn the details!

Critic Reviews

"These volumes introduce readers to the wonder and value of maps.... Each book defines a map type; summarizes its developmental history; discusses basic cartographic terms, such as scale, legend, and compass roses; and explains how it depicts important data with real-world applications. Chapters combine clear prose and examples on almost every page to describe and illustrate cartographic and informational concepts. A concluding 'Are You a Whiz at...?' activity requires readers to use maps to complete several steps in order to plan a trip or adventure.... VERDICT: A recommended series to help students appreciate the language and importance of maps." (School Library Journal, Series Made Simple)
