At a quick glance this book looks great. We have yet to study geography mostly for lack of having founda good program. This looks like one we could use and enjoy. I especially like that there are book lists for extra reading included.

I enjoyed reading the first chapter. I was concerned when the author stated everyone has a home, but relieved when homeless was addressed. The topic was written about with compassion, and included ways even small children can help combat homelessness.

I look forward to reading more chapters and sharing history with my little girl.

I really like the extra material on the cd. One sample I saw was it linked to music of the region. That's neat. Let me know if I win.

After reviewing the first 3 chapters, I am convinced that this is the curriculum for our family. The subject is taught with our Lord at the forefront, never letting our children forget that He has created this planet for His people. I love the sections at the end of each chapter that show creative ways to expand on our knowledge. I especially love the hands on activities. I'm sure my children will love them, too. I also really like the extra resources at the end of the chapters. Thank you for such a great product!

My 6 y.o. son has always had a detailed interest in geography, maps, the earth, etc. since he was very young, but I had no idea where to get a detailed, comprehensive resource that could satisfy all his questions and interests, AND affirm God as the creator. I love the sample chapters and would love to win this book!

Terri as usual you have resources available that are either hitting it out of the park on their own or are a perfect companion to the items that you already have. It's a winner.
I have Geography down for next year, as it looks like I am working with multiple grades your Geography in a year plus this will cover everyone.
Love it!! And I plan to use both.
Blessings

I have been wanting to buy this book. I had read several reviews on it and they all sound great. It looks like my son would love it too! Here is my email address: ssjfamilia@aol.com. Thanks! Linda

Heidi said...

This book looks like a treasure box full of learning, fun and special times spent together learning about geography. I love the book list suggestions, the activities look doable and you have the choice to expand and visit down rabbit trails of learning or just keep on reading.

I like the samples i read...my son has Aspergers and some other challenges and I often face problems with educational materials...this book, however, gives the information in a chatty manner so that the learning is achieved by osmosis rather than by rote...I like the Christian perspective of course too, and I also like the variety of additional activities so that the lesson can be tailored to the needs of each child...

Wow! What agreat geography helper! We have been using a notebookingapproach for about 2 years now and this book would sure fit the bill for us. Just from viewing the samples and reading the reviews it is clear this will fit right in at our home. It holds Mom's hand (lol) and guides the kids in their explorations in a creative and creative way.

This looks like an excellent geography curriculum. I with I'd have learned from this as a child. Do you have material for older children too?
Let me know if I win.

Debi said...

The geography curriculum looks good, It appears to be very thorough and has enough activities to keep children busy, but not just busy work. Activites that will help them really learn the material..
