Synopsis

Map Reading for the Caribbean by John Macpherson

It may therefore be used as a companion volume to Caribbean Lands which deals in a descriptive way with general and regional geography of the area at about the same level. Map Reading for the Caribbean is not intended for absolute beginners, but it does take into account the fact that many students who are familiar with the elements of geography have had little opportunity to relate these elements to the West Indian landscapes represented by the range of maps in this book. It is a workbook based on the principle that the best way to learn how to interpret maps is to carry out a series of exercises based on them. Of the 47 assignments contained in this book, 35 follow a carefully graded sequence designed first to teach the basic skills of map reading and then to assist students to use what they have learned in interpreting features of increasing complexity. The remaining 12 assignments have been included as revision exercises to ensure that srudents do not forget the techniques they have learned, or allow their speed of map reading to lapse. Three tests at the end of the book have been included to help students prepare for examination conditions.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
