The Magic Map

reviewed by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media

Description: Imagine the childlike thrill of finding an old treasure map, then finding yourself with its author, who happens to be Treasure Island writer, Robert Louis Stevenson. In the end, "The Magic Map" reveals how it is easy to find a treasure in a book! Adult comments: Simple sets, simple dance routines. Uses humor, imagination, treasure maps and songs to present ideas about writing stories. Emphasis is on child's own discovery. Reinforces the importance of literacy and map skills. Contains Christian overtones. Kids comments: Kids like the humor, the dancing and the original songs. It held their attention. Will also appeal to older children. "Oh, yeah, they treated each other well." "The crow is really silly. I liked when they went to the beach. My friends would giggle."
