I picked up this beautiful new MAPS book from my local bookstore a few weeks ago and we took it with us on our recent road trip to Belgium and The Netherlands, and I’m so glad we did! It was an enormous hit with all the children – there were so many instances where we found children curled up together on the sofa, hidden behind this big book, pointing out all the little details of each map. It was also good timing because we were traveling, and the kids were able to look at the different countries we had driven through, and of course the landmarks and curiosities of Belgium.
MAPS is a new book out from Big Picture Press. It is a celebration of the world, from its immense mountains to its tiny insects – and everything in between. And it features 52 different maps filled with endearing illustrated details. It’s one of those books that you can return to over and over again and still find something new on each page.
Since our return back to London, I have found this book hidden in the covers of my boys’ bed every single morning when I make their bed. I’m pretty sure they are staying up late every night discovering new countries around the world. They told me this morning that last night they ‘travelled to New Zealand and Poland and then back to London’. So sweet!
The book is available to buy from good book stores, or online from Amazon .
