Almost useless if child studying only second textbook in series
September 11, 2014
I purchased this maps book to go along with America the Beautiful Part 2, the textbook that takes the child through modern day. It was a complete disappointment. Almost the entire maps book pertained to the FIRST textbook, with only a handful of instructions for the Part 2 textbook. Even so, many of the instructions were so basic, it was hardly worth the money. Instructions included such commands as "circle a certain city" or "outline such and such country." That's it? What a disappointment! The book our son used last year included instructions such as finding and color coding all the allied countries during a war, marking the entire trail pioneers followed across country, etc. Circling the name of a city would take about 10 seconds - not enough time for homeschoolers to log hours for mapping. It's such a shame that Notgrass can't get their supplemental materials right. The textbook is absolutely wonderful, but I was so unhappy with the maps book and also the Lesson Review book, but I had to keep the latter to obtain the quizzes. I did, however, return the Maps book.
