In this original and amusing book, Mr. Tardy stumbles into the office of Mr. Meridian Longitude and Mr. Azimuth Latitude. He is late for an appointment and in desperate need of directions. Mr. Tardy has come to the right place! With Mr. Tardy trying to keep up, the tall Mr. Longitude and the wide Mr. Latitude educate him on maps and their features, compass points, and geographic formations. The book is completely illustrated (like a children's book) and explains things in a simple, direct manner for young students. SC. 32 pgs. The reproducible Legends & Leagues workbook provides fun, worthwhile activities for children to complete after reading the book. They'll complete matching exercises, coloring pages, simple puzzles, landmark drawings, and of course a couple different types of maps. PB. 44 pgs.

Building upon the concepts of Legends & Leagues, your children can deepen their understanding of geography with four new titles. According to the publisher, the books may be completed in any order and it is suggested you spend one year in each book, although it would be possible to compress each study into one semester with older students. Non-reproducible workbooks are optional but comprise the heart of the geography study. Workbooks include teaching points, expanded information on topics introduced in the reader, short answer questions, recipes, maps, tests and quizzes. A detailed glossary and answers are located in the back of the workbooks. Perforated pages. SC. Books are 62 pgs and workbooks 159 pgs. Veritas recommends the Audio Memory Geography Songs to accompany this series, and this is included in the sets below.

Legends & Leagues South brings back the helpful Mr. Longitude and Mr. Latitude as they travel south to help Peter find stories of his own. Throughout their travels, adventures abound including Dr. Livingstone, pirates, magic carpets, various treasures, mermen, and so much more! Topics expanded upon in the workbook include an overview of continents and oceans before launching into Africa and the Middle East.

Legends & Leagues East once again finds us traveling with the renowned Mr. Latitude and Mr. Longitude as they help Momochan in a quest to overcome her nightmares. Adventures include meeting dragons, fairies and Captain Nemo, a famous submarine captain. Topics further explored in the workbook include the overview of continents and oceans and the continents Asia and Oceania.

Legend & Leagues North brings a feisty 7 ½ year old, Alice, to the offices of Mr. Longitude and Mr. Latitude. What this delightful young lady doesn't realize is that there are good kings and queens, and she is about to experience the adventure of a lifetime to meet them. Along the way she meets St. George, sea serpents, varied royalty and a witch. Topics studied include the British Isles, Europe, Scandinavia, the North Pole, and the Former U.S.S.R.

Legends & Leagues West has Mr. Longitude and Mr. Latitude responding to a cry for help from Paul Bunyan. In this tall adventure to find his blue ox, Babe, we visit El Dorado, Atlantis, and New York, even meeting Big Foot. Geographical locations studied include South America, Central America, the Caribbean, the United States of America, Canada and Greenland. ~Deanne
