I'm pleased with this series.
I like that this is an easy and inexpensive way to give my son a good map/geography background. It doesn't cover everything in social studies but it's great for maps and what it does cover. Each two page spread is an individual lesson and makes it easy to do. It's quick but to the point and all the answers for the lesson are found within that lesson.
