Knowledge Quest has allowed my family to review volume 3 of their geography series called A Child’s Geography: Explore the Classical World.

The book is geared towards grades 1 to 6 and is only $34.95.

A Child's Geography

When a geography book is written in an interesting manner, we can all agree the child is going to remember the information just a bit better, right? Well, that is why this book is a winner!

This book has a little bit of something for everyone…

If you like to just read your information and you can absorb it in that manner, then the book is wonderful all on its’ own. The text is so detailed, just reading it could suffice.

However, if you are a hands on type of person (or your child is), then this book is great for you too! It comes with lots of hands on activities to do along the way. You can cook a meal from the area you are studying, complete with recipes! You can also complete hands on crafts to help you learn the information!

The book is complete with LOTS of pictures for your visual learners, too!

If you are a history fan, you will LOVE this book. There is so much history weaved into this book. As the book takes you through the countries, it takes you through the history of the place, as well!

With the notebooking activities, timeline drawing, and mapping, those history lessons will be cemented in your memory!

My kids love to go to the computer to look things up for school, so the links to videos about what we were learning were especially appreciated.

And, finally, also included is a prayer guide for all the countries you will study. So, as you are learning about a particular country and culture, you can pray for them as well!

The only real complaint I have about the book is the lack of instruction on what to do and how much to do on each day. I like for a curriculum to hold my hand and lead me. :) We just kind of did as much as our schedule at the office would allow each day. It worked, but I still would have liked some direction. For many families this won’t be a problem. And, honestly, for us it wasn’t a problem either once we got into the book. It was just a bit frustrating when I was first looking at the book.

Overall, though, that’s the only complaint. I really have enjoyed the book and we will be continuing to study from it this year. I’m excited to finish the book and I think the kids are enjoying it as well.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention… included in the back of the book is a CD with lots of extra stuff to use… timelines, maps, extra activities, recipes, additional reading lists, and e-book version of the book for when you are traveling, and more! It is an invaluable resource!
