Miles To Go by Jamie Harper is a cute picture book about a little boy pretending to drive his toy car to school, but the best part, according to my little one, was the end pages which showed Miles’ path to and from school. She liked to trace the path and talk about the sights illustrated along the way. We decided to make our own map, so we took photographs of our three block walk to the grocery store for our map. It was a fun way to introduce simple maps to my three-year-old.
