This book has some interesting facts in it that are not found in other geography books for children. It also has good summaries of each region on the globe. However, I don't know how the publisher can say this is an "Everything" geography book when there is not a single map in it! That is just crazy. It if had maps, I would recommend it. As it is, however, I'd skip it.

The lower Elementary school curriculum does not teach much about geography. My kid is going to be eight, and I found this book a good bridge for my kid to get some basic knowledge about the world. She found it informational and fun. She might not read every section of the book, since some terminologys could be difficult for an eight year old, but my goal is to open her mind to a different science field, which I think this book serves the purpose. I recommend this to parents who want their kids to be well-rounded.

I was disappointed because I thought the book had pictures and illustrations that children could understand. The verbage was more than I could stand so I just set the book aside.

It may be OK for a High School student or college student.

I tried to give it to the library at school and they did not want it either. They said the children would not be interested in reading the book. It was not appealing to even open any further than the first page to see that it had few pictures and to much too read.

Great supplement to other materials we use, and sometimes I just use it by itself, either way I love it!
