    We love it!

    We used this to start off our geography homeschool lessons. My boys, ages 2, 4 and 6 loved it. A must read in the learning library series!

    My kindergartener loves this book.

    This book teaches all about maps and how to use and read them. My kids love it and want to read it over and over again. And they are learning more about maps each time they read it - and why and how we use maps.

    Teacher Recommended!

    As a 6th grade social studies and geography teacher, I wish all of my student's parents had read them this book often during their elementary years. That way I wouldn't be taking the extra time to teach them material that should only be a review in 6th grade. I highly recommend this book for the easy explanations of everything associated with geography! A great first "text book!"
