At the risk of blowing my cover, I just like to do a little bit of self-promotion. My spouse and I have written and assembled a book on mapping for kids (not just Canadian kids) called Maps and Mapping for Canadian kids. Available at Chapters.ca and Amazon.ca. Coming out in October.

'Rudy' or should we use Paul :)

Very interesting.
For all 'French' speaking adepts of Cartotalk note that there is also a French version of this book.

My children might be out of the recommended age range, but not me :)

Can this book be used in schools? Is Chapters and amazon your only distribution channels?

Looking forward to purchasing it.

Yes, I should have noted that a French version is available as well. It is actually a trade publication, not an educational publication but it could be used in schools. I daresay that you could order directly from Scholastic Canada.

It was a fun thing to do. I did do some of the maps and photos - but not all - and had input on the content. My wife did all of the writing.

Kudos, Paul. I see from your bio that you (like me) started making maps as a kid. Kids need to have books like this. For me, it was Susan Marsh's All About Maps and Mapmaking. Hope your book nurtures a whole new generation of cartos!
