Beginning Geography~Review


As part of the Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team I was given a copy of Evan-Moors, Beginning Geography to review.


We are having so much fun with this book!  It’s a really simple and gentle introduction to Geography, aimed at children from Kindergarten thru 2nd grade.

This is my kindergartener and she is probably getting the most out of the book.  She is learning direction, both left and right and North, South, East and West.  She is learning to read a map and to use it’s key to find things.  She is learning what a compass is and what it’s for. 


You can see that some of the fully reproducible pages require cutting and gluing, which only adds to the fun!


We do two pages each day, it only takes about 10 minutes and it’s a favorite subject with my younger three.


This is my 2nd grader and while I think this book is too easy for him, he’s still enjoying it and proclaims daily, “I love Geography!”


As an added bonus my 3 year old has been able to participate in some of the activities.  Especially where it’s not required for him write something, but to locate something or follow directions. 

We have yet to cover major landforms and continents, but they are in there as are two fully colored maps that the children will love to see hanging on the wall!

Timberdoodle sells Beginning Geography for $10.75.  You can get your copy here!  I’m pretty excited because I’ve already purchased the next book for my 2nd grader to use when he starts 3rd grade and I’ll be interested to see how much of it my newly turned 1st grader will be able to understand and participate with!

Timberdoodle loves to give out catalogs, to get one mailed to you, click here.
