The MAPS ACTIVITY BOOK from Big Picture Press is a delightful drawing, learning, and coloring book designed to teach kids about the wide world around them.
I loved the simple designs and interspersed blue/green/tan coloration throughout, which allowed for the ""readers"" own imagination to really come through onto the page. The activity pages have easy to understand instructions, while the blurbs of extra information are interesting and well-written.
I only wanted a little more organization, perhaps in the form of an introductory paragraph on the inside of the front cover. As an adult who will be recommending this book to young readers and perhaps using it in a classroom setting, I needed a little bit of guidance to get started. However, the young readers who pick up this book will not have that problem and will love just jumping right in to the activities!
With the perfect combination of fun activities, self-guided learning, educational content, and personal exploration through drawing and coloring, the MAPS ACTIVITY BOOK is perfect for classrooms, library activities, and young explorers and artists.
