    1. Such a fun book that practices map skills. My four year old loved it and I can definitely see reading it again when she's old enough to do the challenges alone.

    2. I absolutely adored this book when I was 6. Everyone in the entire grade 1 class did (often leading to fights at borrowing time, oh dear!). When I finished year 12, the librarian gave it to me because it was too old to be in the school library. When I opened it up I could see why, obviously not just my year had loved this book. It takes readers on a journey through 6 magical lands as they find 'wedding presents' for Prince Charming and Cinderella. I cannot even explain how wild my imagination wa [...]

    3. This book provides maps for tours of six enchanted lands. Fly to Neverland with Peter Pan, skip down the yellow brick road with Dorothy, fall down the rabbit hole to Wonderland, climb the beanstalk to the Giant’s kingdom, see the sights at the market in Aladdin’s kingdom, and enjoy the lush greenery of the Enchanted Forest where Snow White and the seven dwarves live. Can you follow the directions to navigate your way through each of the six lands? Can you avoid all the perils and find all th [...]

    4. This is an amazing book that has taught my son (age 4.5) about maps. It is so fun. This book is not just words on a page, but it inspires adult-child interaction - oh, wait, let's look in the key; let's look at the compass rose; what's southeast? - without being patronizing or pendantic to either party. So much fun. Seriously - my son has spent 2 days drawing a map of his "neighborhood" - where his stuffed animals live - in the style of this book. I've helped him write down directions. We got th [...]

    5. I picked up The Annotated Alice to help me thoroughly prepare for our upcoming bookgroup discussion of Alice in Wonderland. I don't think you could find any book that would explain and provide thoughtful commentary for the curious aspects of this very curious book. Just for fun, I also read Alice in Wonderland, illustrated by Alison Jay, along with the Disney Step into Reading version, and the board book version, Alice in Wonderland: A Colors Primer. And I read The Once Upon a Time Map Book: Tak [...]

    6. This is a thoughtfully illustrated and ingenious book for learning about maps through fairytales. It might be a bit advanced for kindergarten, the text is very small, but I am including it in our library as a starting point for thinking about maps. Plus children enjoy the illustrations! It includes maps on these fairytales: Peter Pan, the Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Jack and the Beanstalk, Aladdin, and Snow White. Might be a good one to share at home after reading one of the related fairy [...]

    7. I found a signed copy of this book at St. Vinnie's. The things people will get rid of! It's a great book for older children who love fairy tales. It has a puzzle element (a map grid to follow; objects to find), and it's a nice reminisce of fairy tale lands.(My used copy has written in it: For Brianna -- Happy travels -- B.G. Hennessy.)

    8. This is a really cool book! It took me awhile to find all the hidden objects because they were so small! (My cheaters weren't much help for these 50+ year old eyes.) My niece will enjoy these maps, especially if she's familiar with the stories. It also teaches a few map reading skills.

    9. This might be the book that started it all. Well, not my obsession with maps, really, by my obsession with the accuracy of maps of fictional worlds. Also, details. This book has so many tiny details, I'm still not sure I've seen them all.I wish there were more than 6 maps in this book.

    10. This book is great for teaching maps! It presents a large scale view of fairytale stories that students are most likely familiar with. It would be great for a cross-curricular activity! Ot also has a key and markings for longitude and lagitude.

    11. Excellent! Very fun book with detailed maps of magical places (Peter Pan's island, Oz, etc.) There's a path to follow and hidden pictures to find in each map. So fun!Fantastic illustrations - so detailed.

    12. I really like this one, although the kids ADORE it - how could they not love it when it's full of maps (and they never tire of drawing their own treasure maps, etc.)

    13. Book has maps of famous fictional kingdoms (Oz, Neverland). Very cool book to use when practicing map reading skills with students.

    14. This is an especially good book if you want to teach your children about or they are interested in maps.

    15. Excellent map reading practice for school aged children set in a humorous context. Also gives them the opportunity to spy out hidden objects or people.

    16. Fun. Venture into fairy-tale lands. Directions to follow to find your way through each setting plus bonus seek-and-find items.

    17. The Once Upon a Time Map Book is centred around Cinderella and Prince Charming's honeymoon. They take a journey through six lands: Neverland, Oz, Wonderland, the Giant's Kingdom (Jack and the Beanstalk), Aladdin's Kingdom and the Enchanted Forest. There is a map of each which takes you on a brief guided tour through each land, catching the tourist spots and keeping an eye out for a hidden wedding present/the Lost Boys/the Cheshire Cat/etc before making it back home to the castle, in time for a H [...]

    18. The Once Upon a Time Map Book has been one of the most looked at library books that we have checked out this year. In fact we renewed the book three times until we reached our renewal limit and had to return it to the library. While pretty basic in concept, follow the given directions to explore the illustrated maps of various storybook lands, the kids absolutely adored this book. It provided some great practice in learning compass directions and navigating maps.
