Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Anita Barnes Lowen

"When Jessie first moves to Owl Lane, she does not know her way around the neighborhood. Fortunately Sara lives next door--a cool older kid who does know her way around. “Whenever Jessie had a question about how to get somewhere, Sara had an answer.” One morning Jessie needs to find the library. She asks Sara for help. Using her computer, Sara prints a map of the town and takes the time to explain how to use it. But better yet, Sara and her dog Pixie go with Jessie. Jessie reads the map and leads the way, but Sara is there with lots of good information. Kids will certainly learn map basics; the explanations Sara gives about how to read and use a map, and her definitions of map related-concepts (map key, landmark and symbols), will be readily understood by young readers. An activity page, a glossary, and a list of places to learn more about maps are included. From the “Read-it! Readers Social Studies” series, this “green level” book is described as presenting more complex ideas with an extended vocabulary range." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
