The text is wonderful! Anne Voskamp has presented an introduction to geography that's very easy to read and discuss. But I was disappointed because at that price, I expected a thick hardcover. It is actually a very thin paperback. Also, it comes with a CD-ROM full of printable activites which are essential to the lesson plans, and no print shop will print them because there's no copyright permission granted. One print shop told me if they had been able to print it, it would cost quite a bit for each set of printables! I think at the price we paid for the book it should have come with the consumables allready printed. I would have returned the product if my son hadn't spilled grape juice on it!
My 3 children (ages 12, 10, 4) and I have only completed the first chapter, but I am really enjoying the activities and discussions we have had so far. Even though the girls are at different levels, they have all been able to participate. They all enjoyed looking at bird's-eye view pictures of the world and making a postcard of what they saw - a suggested project after reading chapter one. I would love it if the book had more color photographs to show them as we read - instead we used the internet to enhance their learning visually. I love that they will learn not only geography, but will also have a biblical view of the world God made and will be encouraged to consider and pray for all the other people who inhabit earth.
