    A wonderful unit study incorporating geography, history and science, based on the Holling C. Holling books. Students learn about three main geographic regions of the U.S. as well as a basic introduction to World geography. Designed to be used with maps (see below) that children color, label and complete as they study each region via the books. Paddle-to-the-Sea covers the Great Lakes, St. Lawrence River, and North Atlantic. Tree in the Trail includes the Great Plains and Southwest. Minn of the Mississippi leads children on an adventure down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Seabird presents an overview of world geography. Pagoo follows the life of a young hermit crab, trying to grow up in a tide pool - without being eaten along the way. If you've never read a Holling C. Holling book, you're in for a treat! These are lovely, "old fashioned" books that simultaneously educate and entertain. Each blends science, history, and geography into a narrative told from the viewpoint of a central "character"'s adventures or experiences. It's difficult to imagine a more appropriate choice for studying these topics. Can be used as a one-semester course at 2-3 lessons per week or a 1-year course at 1-2 lessons per week.

    Written in the style of Hillyer's Child's Geography of the World, this introductory geography study incorporates lively, current text, recommendations of additional books to enjoy, narration, notebooking, and other fun activities, too! Geography of the earth is approached as if you and your children were taking a journey through and around the earth, learning everything about the Earth as a whole (individual continents and countries will be studied in upcoming volumes). Eleven chapters each focus on a geography topic, including the atmosphere, the continents, the oceans, seasons, climate, weather, the structure of Earth, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, latitude, and longitude. The author recommends spending two days on each chapter; one to snuggle up and read the text together, and the other to spend on the activities. Taking basic information like ocean currents, the rotation of the earth and plate tectonics and presenting them to children in an exciting way could have been a challenge, but the author has done a very impressive job here and has taken great pains to present the information in a personal way that children will understand and often be awed by. Occasionally the text is broken up by a "Tell the folks at home all about it!" which acts as a narration prompt. The narration jogs kids' memories about what they have read so far and helps them to remember it by describing it in their own words. To take this the next step, the author recommends that you and your child or children pretend you're on the phone while they tell you what they've "seen" in their journey. Each chapter's text ends with a "Postcard Home" which further embodies the "journey" theme. Postcard templates are found in the back of the book, or can be printed from online resources.  For each chapter, children will create their own postcard of the journey, in which they draw what they have learned on the front and describe it on the back, as if they were describing it to a recipient. Dressing up the ordinary "notebooking" as making postcards is a novel idea that will undoubtedly be a little more fun! After this point in every chapter, there is a "Reaching Out to His World" section, which ties the concepts from the text into a need that people around the world experience. Suggestions for further research and outreach are included in each one, so you can not only learn about the earth but develop a heart for helping others, too. "Further Explorations" in each chapter list books which tie in to that topic, and each book is listed with a summary and a grade range the book is most appropriate for. Two "Too-Fun-to-Resist Excursions" round out each chapter, and although they're not "required," I can understand why they call them too fun to resist! Some of the activities include mapping the location of shoes found washed up on shore (after containers of them were lost to the sea) to investigate ocean currents, making an edible earth, identifying rocks, doing an "earth dance," making volcanoes, looking for pictures in the shapes of the continents, and much more! These activities have clearly not been "tacked on" just because they are related to the chapter's topic; they are well-chosen and things that kids will definitely enjoy. An appendix at the end of the book contains the postcard templates, geography copywork and maps you will need throughout your journey. What a fun and appealing way to study world geography as a family! I just hope "Vol. 1" means that more are on the way! Jess
