WonderMaps
Pick Your Features - Print Your Maps!
Imagine trying to teach anatomy without a model, or math without manipulatives. History without an undergirding of geography is more mystery than history. Your child needs to see borders to understand conflicts, distances to imagine hardships, and terrain to envisage needs. Maps bring such clarity to history that it would be silly to try to teach without them.

But trying to find pertinent maps for each child for every year of study can be a time drain that few homeschooling parents can afford. That is why we are delighted to offer you WonderMaps, made-to-order geography materials at your fingertips.

Choose any one of the 350 different maps and then customize it to fit your childís level of study. Wonderfully versatile, each map has a variety of layers that you can turn on or off with a simple checkbox. Need a basic outline of a country, itís there. Want to add cities, borders, terrain, even color? Each is just a click away. Easy-to-use layers even allow you to see how borders changed over time!

WonderMaps is divided into four categories: maps of the world, maps of the USA, historical maps, and thematic maps (including biblical maps). Plus, if your family uses either The Mystery of History or All American History, you will be delighted to know that WonderMaps includes the complete map sets from each entire series! Your options when using WonderMaps are seemingly endless. Using maps in your homeschool will bring needed perspective not only to history, but to literature, science and biblical studies as well.

WonderMaps is designed with easy-to-use layers that allow you to enjoy great customizable features with just a click. Select:

  • Historical or modern-day maps

WonderMaps Review by The Work of Childhood January 10, 2012
Reviewer: Gabby from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
There are SO many fantastic options with WonderMaps.

Since we have started learning about Benjamin Franklin this month, the FIRST map I went after was a map of the original 13 colonies. I found it quickly under Thematic Maps!

I love that it gives me the option of different choices to display on the map!

Even though we have only actually used a handful of the maps so far, I can tell that WonderMaps is going to be an INVALUABLE resource for our homeschooling!! I know many maps you can probably find with a quick Google, but Bright Ideas Press really knew what they were doing when they created this program to have ALL of these fabulous maps in one place AND to have them be COMPLETELY customizable to your needs…it can’t get any better than that! Just think of all the time saved hunting online for maps that suit your needs when with WonderMaps, you can do it in a matter of one or two clicks!

WonderMaps Review by Spell Outloud January 9, 2012
Reviewer: Maureen from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
Many times while reading a book I’ve wished I had access to maps to illustrate exactly where things were occurring in the story. Other times I needed a map to help my children learn where certain cities, states, rivers etc. were located but did not have one that could be printed and labeled. Bright Ideas Press came out with a perfect solution to both of my problems---WonderMaps!

This made me happy. Knowing that I could easily print multiple copies of  a map with just a click of a button.

Everything is neatly organized and laid-out. I found it easy to navigate and find what I needed.

Being able to have so many maps at my fingertips will mean that I can save time searching for them on the internet. This is one resources that crosses into multiple subject-areas and I now consider WonderMaps one of my homeschool curriculum staples.

WonderMaps Review by Sam's Noggin January 9, 2012
Reviewer: Sam from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
Any good homeschooler incorporates map work into their classroom setting. This homeschooler tries really hard to keep up with those kinds of things, but I have one problem. I stink at it.

In our various curricula there have been maps involved in our day to day study, and I usually have to wait for my husband. Not with WonderMaps!

You can choose if your maps are color or black- and-white, if you want to include outline, reference, political, or topographical information, and different map features, such as borders, rivers, and cities.

WonderMaps is really wonderful, it really is, and will work with any curriculum, or for non-homeschoolers. It would also be perfect for a History buff, or your personal Bible study.

I no longer have an excuse for not being prepared for map time during our day. This map-impaired mom has found what she wished she had all along this homeschool journey, map help!

WonderMaps Review by Our Good Life January 6, 2012
Reviewer: Aurie from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
This one software program offers maps in four categories: the world {continents, regions, nations}, United States of Amerca, Historical Maps, and Thematic Maps.  The maps are detailed, concise, and easy to read.  Each map has layers {cities, nations, rivers, land areas, etc} that can be added or removed.  The maps can be viewed in back and white or color.

My favorite {so far} are the thematic maps.  Some of the themes included are Biblical Maps, Native Americans, Explorers, and World Wars.  I've used the Biblical maps in my bible study, as well as the Bible in 90 Days Challenge.

My husband is a history professor and a map lover, so I asked him to take a look at the software as well.  His take?  It is easy to navigate, easy to read and we both love that we can print the maps!

Homeschool materials can be expensive, and having an extensive mapping program will be a wonderful tool that we can access again and again.

I highly recommend Wondermaps from Bright Ideas Press.
