    As I oooo and aaahhh my way through the beautiful pictures in this book, I am reminded of what an amazing place the earth is. It is diverse, rugged, and awesome. DK always does an amazing job with photographic presentation, and this book is no exception. Take a visual journey from the beginning of the solar system, to rocks and minerals, water formation, weather and climate, life on earth, the human world, and mapping the world. Every photo, illustration, and map is accompanied by a small amount of information. A country factfile summarizes all of the countries of the world by offering facts about each area, population, capital, currency, official language, life expectancy, and information about an accompanying picture. A glossary is included for words that might be unfamiliar. I am always curious about new destinations and intrigued by photos from different areas (I might want to go there someday), but not all of the photos provide that information. Another thing to keep in mind is that this is from a secular perspective; theories as fact abound. 300+pgs, p/b. ~ Donna

    This book literally blazes a trail through geography - all you have to do is follow it! Cindy Wiggers has done a terrific job of combining questions, mapping, and other activities into a fun, easy-to-teach approach to geography. Intended as a thirty-six week program, the first twenty-seven of these include a variety of activities. The first weeks encompass the world as a whole; then you focus on different regions continent by continent. Within each week there are several different methods of learning. One of these, Geography Trails, provides questions four days a week that will improve the student's ability to use maps to locate countries, capitals, bodies of water, and landforms, teach them valuable geography terms and learn many geography facts. Different questions are given for grades 2-4, 5-7, and 8-10, so that you can use this book for children at different levels at the same time. The questions are based on the content of three recommended atlases (one for each age group) which are listed in the key resources below. Additional geography activities for every week are in the form of "Points of Interest," where you can take time to learn more extensively. Activities to choose from include mapping, researching, suggestions for art projects, and weekly projects to compile into your very own geography notebook. Then it's Geography through Literature for the last nine weeks as you read through Around the World in 80 Days. Questions for each chapter are provided, as are ideas for additional research and spelling and vocabulary words. Happy trails!

    Please note that that this course provides a framework for studying world geography, and relies on additional resources for reference, maps, and activities. Required resources include: Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne (if you are planning on completing the literature portion of the study) and one or more of the recommended atlases (depending on the age of the student(s). Three other "key" recommended resources you will rely heavily on for many of the activities include the Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide, Uncle Josh's Map Book (in book form, or CD-ROM), and Visual Manna's Teaching Geography Through Art (for the art in geography lessons). Although you could make the study work without these, they are often referred to in the lessons, and the program would work much more easily with them. These and other recommended resources are listed below. An almanac is also recommended, in case you don't have one on hand, we recommend the World Alamanac & Book of Facts. A Geographical Terms chart is also recommended; we are unable to offer this specific one, but it is available from Geography Matters. ~ Stephanie

    This atlas from Rand McNally bridges the gap between simpler atlases geared to younger students and adult reference-only atlases. Like its adult cousins, this atlas is packed full of colorful maps and handy reference material; however, it also includes some student-friendly features such as charts/graphs, narrative text, and continent question and answer pages (on geographical, political, economic, cultural, and historical topics) which give students the opportunity to learn and study the material, instead of merely looking up items for reference. The atlas begins with an overview of map terminology. Next are sections on the earth/solar system, plate tectonics, climate, and other topics pertaining to physical geography. A twelve-page countries and flags of the world section presents basic information about 199 countries. Seven world maps are included: political, physical, climate, vegetation, population density, environments, and time zones. Detailed political and physical maps are provided for each of the seven continents and the U.S., plus thematic maps and select regional/country maps. Some examples of the continent thematic maps include: climate, population, environments/land use, or special topics specific to the continent (i.e. destruction of the rain forest in South America). Glossary and index included. 176 pgs, pb. Revisd in 2015. ~ Lisa

    You have to wonder a bit at the brazenness of calling yourself the "definitive" guide to history, but this book makes good on the claim. With countless photos, artifacts, maps, timelines, artwork, and drawings, it's definitely a visual history. Divided into eight units origins (yes, it does embrace an old earth perspective); rulers/hierarchies; thinkers/believers; warriors, travelers/inventors; renaissance/reformation; industry/revolution; population/power; and national histories, its 152 chapters and 40 special focus spreads are detailed enough to actually provide that definitive history it claims. A special (and very nice) feature is the individual timeline histories of the world's 195 countries (continent by continent). Pages are heavy, semi-glossy magazine stock. The last 15 pages are a complete index. 612 pgs, sc. ~ Janice
