Anyone have a child obsessed with maps?

My daughter loves maps SO much. She can locate China, the United States, and she likes to look through Atlas's to find out information about the places. She spends at least 5 minutes a day asking the names of the parts of the world on a map I put up for her in her reading center. She is 2 and a half by the way and I don't know if this is typical toddler behavior or not.

Anyone have a child obsessed with maps or who was obsessed with maps at an early age?

Thanks,
Dani

  • No but I love maps myself, lol. I have a globe in my dinningroom and just took down the United States of America map I had hanging on the wall (to make room for something else). My kids can locate a few of the states but they aren't particularly interested in it yet.
