Why is Mary Margaret so crazy about mermaids and latitude & longitude?
Reading about mermaids, and wondering about mermaids are two of her favorite things to do (after swimming of course). As for latitude and longitude, Mary Margaret likes to know where people and places are in the world. She likes to use latitude and longitude to find locations on a map or globe. She also likes to think about where in the world she might get to travel someday, so knowing about latitude and longitude helps her dream up future travel adventures. Please see the latitudes & longitudes below.
On your About the Author page, you said you were writing another book about Mary Margaret. Where will she travel next?
Oh, I'd like to take Mary Margaret on several new adventures. I'll give you a hint of some places she'd like to go...
Can you find these locations on a world map or globe?
What if I don't know how latitude & longitude works?
- Latitude 37 N, Longitude 122 W
- Latitude 19 N, Longitude 155 W
- Latitude 35 N, Longitude 139 E
Time to learn! Ask your parent, teacher, or librarian for a geography book that explains latitude and longitude. Take a look at a globe or world map and find where you live. Or please take a mini-lesson here. Happy travels!
Does Lynn have any other books out or forthcoming?
Yes. Click here for more info about her new picture book, Buzz Bumble to the Rescue.
