It's a small world

It has recently occurred to me that I am on a perpetual quest for the perfect world map, especially one that is kid-friendly. Although this one from Children Inspire Design only labels continents, it is definitely in the running. In fact, the lack of text is a nice change.

It reminds me of my sixth grade geography projects. My teacher showed me how to shade coastlines with blue pencil crayon and I spent hours perfecting my technique.

I also distinctly remember the moment when someone pointed out to me that Italy is shaped like a boot. Well whaddya know.....
