Hours of Fun!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Amazing Pop-Up Geography Book (Amazing Pop-Ups) (Hardcover)
I wasn't sure what to think when I purchased this book for my 8-year-old daughter. We homeschool and she already uses a formal geography textbook...besides, pop-up books are for babies, right? NOT this one! The pages are jammed packed with fun facts, mesmerizing illustrations and many, many little pop-ups that relate interesting facts in a fun, entertaining way. This is truly a kid-friendly book with an earthquake that actually "shakes", a volcano that 'explodes" mid-page, and a hurricane that spirals and whirls around! I especially like the 2-page layout of the world (titled "Countries") where you can find a famous pop-up landmark on the spot of several famous capital cities. This is a cool book that will keep your kids entertained for hours. I use it when I need a break bt feel guilty taking one! My kids don't even miss me. For earlier grades it can stand alone, for mid to upper grades it is a fantastic supplement. I would also suggest the Geography Songs Kit from Audio Memory, Inc. as a companion learning component to this book. Thanks to these resources, and a good atlas and globe, geography is my daughter's favorite subject!
5 Stars (easily). Enjoy -- and don't be afraid to admit that you actually did!!!

Thanks for this fantastic review, Christine! I always perk up to read what other homeschooling parents say about products and appreciate the additional info suggesting the Audio Memory, Inc "Geography Songs Kit". Other HS are my best curriculum guides, so thanks Christine. I will check out your other reviews and am off to buy this and the songs to use for my 5 yr olds this fall - thanks! :)
