Children Map the World: Commemorating the International Map Year, Volume 4
Edited by José Jesús Reyes Nuñez, Carla Cristina R. G. de Sena, Necla Ulugtekin, and Pilar Sánchez-Ortiz Rodríguez
Children Map the World: Commemorating the International Map Year, Volume 4, showcases 50 maps created by children aged 5 to 15 for the 2015 International Cartographic Association’s map design competition, held in Brazil.

Children, parents, teachers, and map enthusiasts will delight in the work of these imaginative young cartographers, whose representations of the world and life in it exhibit their many perspectives on the state of our planet, from optimism to pessimism, grandeur to lightheartedness, and beauty to sobering—and sometimes frightening—truths.
