Kids love it

My kids have really enjoyed working through these map skills books, and they've learned a lot from them. Short lessons do a great job of teaching them to read and understand maps of all sorts, and very affordably. We save this book for last in our school day because it's the most fun!

We homeschool our two boys and they love these books! The content builds a great foundation for geography and map reading. I only wish there were bigger books for each grade or several books per grade since our boys fly through these in the first few months of school.
