My kids love geography, possibly because it is included in every story. I bought a basic world map on clearance for $4.00 and had it laminated. We color the story discs and I use clear contact paper to "laminate" those as well. The map by the kids' bedrooms is often in use and they have a story from each location to remember.
Just for fun, try to incorporate a food from each story (either mentioned in the story or a typical food from the area) into the weekly menu. My kids love this part. We just finished "When I Was Young in the Mountains" (from Vol. 2), and I recreated the meal the grandmother made. Turns out, we all hate okra . . . but at least we tried it!
I use the online catalog for my local library and reserve books for two FIR units at a time, allowing for books to be transferred between libraries and arrive in time for us to use. Expect to sit down with the FIR book at the computer for about 1/2 hour every few weeks. Go through the topics and suggested lesson ideas for each book and reserve anything available at the library that is age-appropriate for your kids. For kindergarten and below, you can easily find free coloring pages on the internet for many of the topics.
Overall, this curriculum is flexible and interesting. However, you will have to bring it to life for your kids. It is not a kit with everything included--more like a good, supportive jumping off point.
