From Here To There by Margery Cuyler

Reviewed by Mrs. Bruno at Arongen

Maria Mendoza takes us on a journey of her world and the world beyond. We are first introduced to her family, the house she lives in and her town and county. Then she shows the reader where she lives on the map of Texas, where Texas is located in the United States, and the continent of North America. As she travels outside the universe, and the solar system is explored, her voyage ends with knowing her place in this world and that home is on planet Earth.

This sounds perfect for second graders! They study communities, maps and the solar system. I'm going to buy a copy for Skano.
