If you want your children to learn how to read maps, look no further than the Kiwi Kids Road Atlas.
The book begins with a guide on how to use maps and points out lots of places of interest to younger travellers, including wildlife experiences and natural attractions, as well as the best playgrounds and short walks, and other exciting things to see and do.
Each page is brought to life with puzzles and games to help children pass the time.
This book is ideal for kids aged 4-11 years. Through using this book my own children were able to remember place names (the order the towns came in on our drives from Whangarei to Auckland), they learnt how to use maps, and they've added in their favourite beaches using a free pen which is included in every purchase.

"I've had the privilege of being both the mother of a daughter who has loved Donna Blaber's holiday writing workshops and also a teacher whose class Donna has inspired as a visiting author. The children were so excited to get to hear the beginning of her newest book and it sparked great discussion on the importance of that first opening sentence in our writing. Donna spoke to all classes that day from the Year 0's through to the Year 8's. She also took a selected group of children for a special writers' workshop. They loved it! If your child has a passion for writing, definitely get them along to the workshops and if you need to inspire your class, organise a visit from Donna!" - Becky Overeem, Maungatapere School
