A Child’s Geography of the World BSA077

US$14.95

Although Iceland is called "ice" island, there are in fact many volcanoes and hot springs; and while Greenland is called "green" island, Greenland is really covered in snow. Some might say, Iceland should be called "Greenland" and Greenland should be called "Iceland". This is the child's perspective about world geography, as can be seen in the book. The maps grab the attention of children with the spirit of exploration, making geography an interesting topic to read about.

把左手的拇指和另外四根手指彎曲成大寫字母「G」的形狀,並把虎口向下,「G代表墨西哥灣,食指就是佛羅里達州,拇指是猶加敦半島,旁邊就是墨西哥了。」

  歐洲地圖就像一幅「神祕的圖」,你把它轉過來看就會發現,歐洲的版圖像一個矮小的老婦人,頭大大的,背駝駝的,伸出一條長長的腿,把一個足球踢到海中。老婦人的頭是西班牙,戴著的帽子是葡萄牙,衣領是庇里牛斯山脈,衣領下面就是法國。

  冰島雖然叫「冰」島,上面卻有許多火山和溫泉;格陵蘭島才真的是冰雪覆蓋。這麼說來,我覺得冰島應該叫「火山島」,格陵蘭島應該叫「冰島」比較合理吧。我以前認識一個小男孩,長得胖嘟嘟的,但他的夥伴卻叫他「瘦子」,就跟冰島一樣,名字和實際情況完全相反。

  擅長將知識化做篇篇動人故事的希利爾校長,這次仍以孩子的視角講述世界地理,瞬間拉近地圖與孩子的距離,讀地理也變成可愛有趣的事情了。
