Children Map the World: Commemorating the International Map Year
Publishing in April
Children Map the World: Commemorating the International Map Year, volume 4, presents 50 maps created by children ages 5 to 15 for the 2015 International Cartographic Association map design competition, held in Brazil. These drawings convey powerful messages and emotions that reflect the competition's theme, “My Place in Today's World.” This volume includes a special atlas of 50 additional maps selected from previous competitions. Featured in part two of this book, the atlas reflects a worldwide celebration of these outstanding maps and their unique role in our world.
Children, parents, teachers, and map enthusiasts will delight in the work of these imaginative young cartographers. The children's representations of the world and life on it illustrate their many perspectives on the state of our planet, from optimism to pessimism, grandeur to lightheartedness, and beauty to sobering, and sometimes frightening, truths.
