4.0 out of 5 stars The world seen by children 31 May 2008
By Maija Racevskis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a magnificent book - a selection of maps submitted by children from around the world, aged 5 to 15, to the International Cartographic Association. Their dreams, interests, hopes and fears are interwoven into these poignant portrayals of our planet, its beauty, and its woes. Having been totally mesmerized by the copy I received, I immediately ordered five more, for each of my grandchildren, and for gifts. This is a book as much for adults as children, and my only regret is that it is a paperback. I will encourage the children to treat the book with love and care, because this is a keeper for life - mine, and my grandchildren's.
