Hi,

I'm a homeschooling mom and I wanted to see what recommendations you might have for World Geography?

ongoing deal on my bookshelf 3-1, 6-2 or 9-3.

I have many ready readers or Henry and Mudge books.

The World Geography Coloring Book...by the same person who did the Anatomy Coloring Book is great.

Also "Teaching the World By Heart"    curriculum is the best I know of.

For basic, but oh so very important, map skills - try the Basic but Not Boring Geography workbook.  Easily found at any teacher supply store. Teaches longitude/latitude and other skills in a cute and humorous manner. I have used it with 9th graders although it is really for younger ages.  The publisher has others in the series but this is the only one I have used.
