I was disappointed by the use of the term "map" instead of "dict". The author does make a small mention that "dict" is another name for "map" but I found it very confusing for me.

I ended up just explaining to my son that most developers use the term "dict", though both terms are correct, and we just used "dict" in our conversation.
