The Cat in the Hat introduces beginning readers to maps the different kinds (city, state, world, topographic, temperature, terrain, etc.); their formats (flat, globe, atlas, puzzle); the tools we use to read them (symbols, scales, grids, compasses); and funny facts about the places they show us ( Michigan looks like a scarf and a mitten Louisiana looks like a chair you can sit in ).
