As the Crow Flies


Product Description
Product Details


PreS-Gr 2-- Reflecting the renewed interest in geography for ever younger readers, simple words and pictures describe the travel of an eagle, a rabbit, a crow, a police horse, a seagull, and the moon. A pictorial map for each animal is given; all maps are joined in ``The Big Map'' at the end. The somewhat sketchy pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations lend a bit of personality to the animals, and the journey each makes helps give the audience some information about its habitat. However, the simplified maps have no uniform scale and are misleading. In the final map, for example, the hot dog stand appears to be almost as big as, and to occupy nearly as much ground as, the city and the section of skyscrapers. The city is not much bigger than the factory. Also, although the maps do come together, there is no overlap or integration. Teachers and parents of very young children will probably not be bothered by the distortions and will appreciate the clear focus on the concept of maps. --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ
