I got this book to further our Classical Conversations (CC) Cycle 1 Geopgraphy studies and it is AMAZING!!!!! My 8 year old was able to follow the pages step by step and had Africa drawn in 35 minutes, and she LOVED it. (To be honest, I sat next to her and drew my own and quite enjoyed myself as well!) She's still learning about proportions, so I did have to assist my daughter twice in that regard, but I was impressed with how simple it was broken down in easy to follow drawings. I am definitely buying the author's other books!

Like many moms, I took my copy (along with "Draw Europe") to OfficeMax and asked them to cut the bindings off. (Wish I had a video of the guy's reaction, but he did it, and a nice clean job, too.) I inserted each page in a page protector and put them all in 1/2" 3-ring binder. Presto! Perfect way to use the book without arguing with the binding to make it lay flat.
At first I handed my children an empty page protector and a dry-erase marker and said, "trace these, starting with the Red Sea, on the page protector." My goal was to not overwhelm my 8-year-old who has a tad of a perfectionist in her--and if it's not going to be perfect, she will fret. This simple tracing method gave her the courage to try it on her own on paper. She did an amazing job. The book is simple, accurate, engaging, and fun. It really doesn't take that long to complete the drawing, and the benefits are staggering.
I wonder if Ms. Draeger has ever heard of Classical Conversations and knows of their deep and thorough use of geography in the Challenge A level--roughly 7th grade. She has blessed many, many parents with her books. If I ever meet her, I shall bow down and kiss her feet. (Preferably after she's put on clean socks.)
