If you've got geography, you're ready for adventure. . . .

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book of poems is great because it touches on many things in geography that can be expanded and created into a lesson. such as about the equator or about volcano's.
This is a small poem book about the world and discoverers. With multiple authors the reader can recognize a specific area of knowledge through the poems that they write. The poems speak of different things and places that are around the world and are a part of the world.
Clever poems about geography and colorful illustrations make this poetry book a keeper. There are poems that make you think, poems that make you smile and poems that make you want to learn more.Sixteen poems scarcely satisfy me though . . . I wanted more, but will be happy to read and re-read these gems out loud!
