Great Extra Resource
I use this as an extra resource with my first grader's geography curriculum. Several reproducible pages to choose from to fit with the skill we are working on. I highly recommend!

I've had this book for over a year now and it has really come in handy with our geography studies I really wanted my kids to learn map skills and they have really enjoyed this workbook-like format It presents geography in a friendly way to little children The instructions are easy enough for them to follow and nicely illustrated I've used this book with my K-3rd grade children It's listed for K-2nd grade but my 3rd grader was challenged enough to work the Landform section and the Continent section I love being able to pick and choose only the pages that I need It's a great supplement to my current geography curriculum You could supplement with any curriculum but we're using "Expedition Earth" by Confessions of a Homeschooler and this book has been a great resource for the geography sections I highly recommend it for early elementary kids who enjoy workbook-like pages

I purchased Beginning Geography to use with my first grade son which turned out to be a great fit for his interest and abilities It would also work well with a second grader but is probably a stretch for Kindergarten (they advertise it for K-2) Since our formal history studies don't begin until 2nd first grade was a good time to get familiar with the world in general (globe maps continents and oceans nations and their flags landforms climate etc) I had intended to use Galloping the Globe by Loree Pettit as the spine of my curriculum but found that Beginning Geography ended up being my primary resource instead Galloping the Globe is meant to be a unit study that involves literature history and science as well as geography which was more than we could use for our simple purpose especially in first grade Also it didn't specifically cover things like landforms and climate Beginning Geography is very useful as the spine of a first grade geography course because it is thorough in teaching everything you would cover with this age group (except countries and flags) and it builds sequentially Using it as a syllabus you can be sure that you are covering the important aspects of geography Its weakness is that its not a curriculum (just worksheets) but that wasn't a problem because the content is pretty self-teaching and at this level the parent can easily learn at the same time as the child Having a beginner's atlas available and supplementing with a few hands on activities would add depth to the program but isn't strictly needed I would also recommend finishing Beginning Geography a few months early and then doing cursory studies of individual countries along with coloring pages of their flags (available in Galloping the Globe or other resources) Other related books I would recommend for this age are Maps and Globes by Jack Knowlton and Geography from A to Z also by Knowlton

Great Intro to Basic Geography
Love how simple and clear this book is. I'm using it for 1st grade and it's perfect! Very simple quick lessons that just cover the basics.

A great place to start.
This book is a great introduction to geography. I am using it for my Kindergartner. The pages are fun and explained well. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the pages they are to cut out ruins the reverse page it's to be glued on. Some writing and reading are more geared towards older grades, but I still feel it's a good beginning for us.

My son is autistic and had some trouble with map-reading last year in math. This book looks like it will be easy to understand and a good place to start in learning to read a map and geography.

Rainbow Resource offered the lowest price even with shipping. I had this book and gave it away. Repurchasing to use for Social Studies with my 2nd grader.

I used Beginning Geography with my older daughter in Kindergarten. It is a great book for beginners. It teaches the basics of geography and makes it fun.
Stacy R on Jul 12, 2016
This is a wonderful geography book. It is nicely illustrated and engaging. Plus it works well for a wide range of beginners. It is not too simplistic for my 8 year old and not too difficult for my 5 year old.

I asked girls what subject they wanted to learn over summer they said maps
