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."
