Elementary Geography Paperback – March 31, 2016
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

We use the Ambleside Online curriculum, and this book is recommended for the early elementary years. The ebook is available free online, and the kindle version is inexpensive, but I much prefer physical books, especially for children. I feel we can develop a relationship with the book much better when we hold it in our hands. If everything is on kindle they have a harder time noticing we're switching to a new book or subject. I carried the ebook around on a flash drive for months, meaning to print and bind it at an office supply store, but I never remembered. I was thrilled when this print version was published, especially since the price is very reasonable.
The book is a comfortable size; the formatting is clean, simple, and minimalistic; the font is easy to read; and the original illustrations are charming. I was especially intrigued by the few footnotes the editors added with updated information. It is very well done and I'm thrilled I was able to snag a copy.
It is filled with poetry, stories and instruction in a very conversational style. We will be using the poetry for our memorization and copy work. If you hold to Charlottes style of teaching, this is a simple, must have book.
From the preface;
"An effort is made in the following pages to treat the subject with the sort of sympathetic interest and freshness which attracts children to a new study."
Lovely book that will lead children to ask questions and enjoy the study of geography.
