How I Learned Geography, by Uri Shulevitz

Now, this was a stunner. After reading A Couple of Boys Have The Best Week Ever, I was despairing, and on the verge of having a small meltdown.
This has saved me.
This was beautiful, from start to finish.
I think this might be more for the adults than for the children, to be honest, but having been the sister of a boy who loved maps , and then marrying a man who loves maps, I think I might have found the perfect book should either of them ever have to do a storytime.
The way the writer described how the maps opened the world was so simple and so perfect.
This was lovely.
