We use the Blackline Maps of World History to cross reference the historical world with the current world for history studues. But, after studying geography in a dry co-op setting, my son has been turned off to it. With this hands-on, relevant approach, he's just going to LOVE IT!

Our daughter has been adding country after country to her list of places to see. Since we are living abroad presently, it has seemed to heighten her awareness and interest in the world. The curriculum "A Child's Geography" looks fantastic. It is creatively instructive and user-friendly. We would thoroughly enjoy it as a family.

Terri: I would like to sign up for the May drawing. Your "Child's Geography" book sounds like just the book I am looking for. I downloaded the first three chapters and can't wait to try them out on my girls. The girls have truly enjoyed the "Star Spangled State Book". When asked recently what their favorite subject was in school, they stated "Geography". Thanks so much for making geography fun.

How awesome our God is. That is how I feel after looking at the samples. A well rounded curiculum. But not just for schooling. Thankyou for creating this curriculum. Looking forward to experiencing this.

I reviewed all three chapters plus the second book on the Holy Land. I love the simplicity and I mean that in a positive way. The chapters are broken down touching on several key points then build upon those through other medias. Each one picking up where the last one stopped. The ideas for the excursions were wonderful. My favorite was listening to the radio between 2 stations and expressing in words what sounds could be heard over the air. I'm an educator turned homeschool mom. I have a special needs child and I know she and her older sister will love the variety and closeness that these books bring to the study of geography. I'm ordering both books!

We use a traditional Christian curriculum for most things, but my girls get bored with subjects like this. Judging by the sample chapters, this book would hold their interest and help them retain what they learn! It reminds me of the Apologia Elementary science books we have been using - well written towards a child's heart. Bravo!

momof4busyboys said...

Wow! Started to send a quick blurb a couple of days ago, but then decided that I should probably go ahead and read the first 3 chapters. I think what really struck me was the conversational tone -- made me think of the way "A Child's History of the World" talks to you as you read. I also loved how the conversation attributed all the miracles to God. This world did not just appear from nowhere. It was spoken into existence by an amazing God with a very creative eye. I LOVED the "Reaching Out to His World" section that reminded my children and myself that there is a world out there that needs to be shown God's love and mercy and then gave suggestions of ways to do it. I also really appreciated the Further Explorations section which suggested other books on the topics (even going as far as to suggest books by age/grade). I was fascinated to learn about the parts of the atmosphere (check out Chapter 2 and 3). I am really looking forward to reading about Continents next. Thanks for a very nice read. This house full of amateur geographers would really enjoy it next year.

It has a similar feel of not being overwhelming and textbooky yet the added activities and relationship with God is impressive. I downloaded the free chapters and would be very happy to win the full copy with the CD for the postcards. I think my children will enjoy the postcard way of notebooking.

This will be my first year homeschooling (K & 1st grade). My kiddos have a good public school to attend, but the opportunity to learn with curriculums like *A Child's Geography* has set me on fire to teach them. Why miss the adventure, the beauty, the depth, the wonder, and the chance to meet our Creator at every turn in the learning process?

I enjoyed looking through the samples of *A Child's Geography.* The language is accessible, friendly, positive, and engaging. I love how questions are used to ignite imagination; the inquisitive nature and passion of the writer quickly ignites the reader's desire to learn. This is the kind of book my kids would beg me to read for a bedtime story. What a fun way to learn ... I can only imagine the passion it will ignite in them for our Creator, our world, and the people in it! I love, also, that the writer calls parents and children to reach out to others in our world, especially those in need.

My worries that teaching my kids would be drudgery are erased ... at least as far as geography is concerned! Now to find similar options for other subject matter. (Another one I'm eyeing is *The Mystery of History* for history/social studies.)

This series looks great. Interesting and engaging. I like the writing style and the bold font for notable words.

I really like the connection to missions. And, I think the authors have a gift for making kids understand large numbers, such as the distance around the earth.

From what I've read from the samples provided, this is exactly the kind of resource Charlotte Mason would have used in her own schools. A work of art.

HI there,
This sounds like a fantastic book. I love the emphesis on it being God's World and the "reaching Out" part. We often learn about other countries in the context of what God is doing there and their spiritual needs so this would gel really well with our approach.

What a fantastic resource; this resolves my last planning dilema - what to use for Geography this coming year for our 6 "Cherubs". Thank you, thank you.

This book appears to be beautifully laid out. I love the solid foundation of God being the Creator and all the "hands on" activities. Would love to have it as a part of our curriculum! Thanks! Karen -

I liked the way this book engages the child. It's not just an interesting collage of facts and pictures but a meaningful conversation about the world we live in and how God is involved in it.

I also like the aspect of 'journey' that lends a framework to the chapters in this book. I just wonder why there aren't many more on other topics such as history and science.

This looks like a wonderful resource. Thanks for making it available and putting it on sale.

I've really been wanting to get a copy of A Child's Geography. I have gained so much from Ann's writings.
Thanks!

I think it's a neat way to cover a lot of things with one reading, and read-aloud has ALWAYS been my hands-down favorite way of teaching! I love that it's God centered, and simple yet not TOO babyish. It may be a little young for my children at this point, but I would love to have one for my grandchildren! An old homeschooler never dies! ;-)
