Crack the code and become an expert map-reader!
July 2021 Book of the Month
The Ordnance Survey Kids’ Adventure Book is an inspiration, guide and introduction to map-reading and navigation that will give both competence and confidence to young explorers.
Ever since I was a kid, looking at a map has been imagining an adventure. Learning the symbols, colours, abbreviations, lines, dashes and fonts that illustrate an Ordnance Survey map is like cracking a secret code that makes it possible to visualise what is around and beyond.
In this new Kids’ Adventure Book, OS has made the learning even more fun - packed cover to cover with puzzles, quizzes and tips that will keep the young adventurer in your family (and you!) entertained for days. Then, once they are ready to step out on their first expedition, the book also provides everything they need to know about how best to prepare, deal with difficult weather, injuries - and even where they might go in Britain and what to do if they get lost! Perfect to equip curious kids aged 8+ with the confidence and skills to explore the outdoors and get adventurous.
Kids who love the outdoors will find more inspiration in our collection, A World of Adventure.
Ordnance Survey, the national mapping service for Great Britain, offers an extensive range of over 607 paper maps for walkers, cyclists and families looking to explore the great outdoors. These maps are also available to view, print, or download to your phone via the popular OS Maps app, so you can plan and navigate routes safely.
Want to become an expert map-reader? Want to explore the great outdoors armed with hints and tips from the map creators themselves? Want to test your new-found skills with a host of challenging map puzzles?
Then this is the book for you.
Created by Ordnance Survey, who make all the incredible maps for the whole of the British Isles, this book will teach you how to read a map like an expert, and explore the incredible outdoors. You'll also have the chance to test your skills with map-reading puzzles that'll keep you entertained for hours.
So strap on your boots, pack up your walking essentials, and start your map-reading adventure!
