Item description for Cool Maps for Curious Kids #2: Afghanistan, an Unauthorized Tour of the Land of A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS and THE KITE RUNNER (Cool Maps for Curious Kids) by W. Frederick Zimmerman...
Welcome to Cool Maps for Curious Kids! Nimble Books believes in "no compromises" maps for kids aged 7 to 77. We believe kids are pretty darned good little geographers and that they deserve to see interesting maps, not goofy pastel cartoons. Note that this is not an atlas; our goal is for you and your kids to be energized to learn more. What we provide in this book is a variety of interesting perspectives. The motivation for this particular volume is that rather remarkably! two books about Afghanistan is at the top of the best seller list right now. Khaled Hosseini's THE KITE RUNNER and A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS have earned rapturous reviews. We suspect that many adults and their children will be interested in knowing more about the nation where these books take place.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cool Maps for Curious Kids #2: Afghanistan, an Unauthorized Tour of the Land of A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS and THE KITE RUNNER (Cool Maps for Curious Kids)?
Worthless for kids...or adults....or teachers...or anybody. Feb 5, 2008
This was such a profound disappointment, I hasten to discourage anybody from going to the trouble buy this book....especially if you hate to send things back...like me. Please understand, this is NOT a book of maps, it is a book of PICTURES of maps,and thus worthless as a real map user. The book is fairly small and the maps, originally much larger were reduced to a size which rendered them illegible and the information inaccessible. Don't go for it, unless you are perhaps the compiler's dearest relative.
