SOL: Geography

2.6 The student will demonstrate map skills by constructing simple maps, using title, map legend, and compass rose.

Summary: Lisa makes a map of her bedroom, with the help of her dog Penny.  While doing this, she decides that she will map Penny’s world, and create maps of the exotic places they will go.

Why I chose it: This book clearly points out important aspects of maps including scale, key, and compass rose, which connects directly to the SOLs.
