Using Economic and Resource Maps by Tracy Maurer -OPTIONAL

Maurer, Tracy Using Economic and Resource Maps 40 pgs. Lerner, 2017. $24.99  NON-FICTION
This book defines economic and resource maps are, shows a variety of those maps, and delves into how they might be useful to the student. It includes many examples with full color illustrations and bright modern photographs.
This book is stuffed with information and very thoroughly covers the intended topic. I like that many real life applications are discussed including some fun facts at the end. Sixth grade may have a use for this book as part of their curriculum. I am not sure that I would seek this book out, since teachers could easily use online examples as part of a lesson. Students would not seek this book out on their own.

EL –OPTIONAL Reviewer: Stephanie Elementary School Librarian & Author.
