Reviews from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team:
"...We are having so much fun with this book! Itís a really simple and gentle introduction to Geography, aimed at children from Kindergarten thru 2nd grade. We have yet to cover major landforms and continents, but they are in there as are two fully colored maps that the children will love to see hanging on the wall!..."
