Category Description for Legends & Leagues:

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 is a set of four books titled East, North, West and South. 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 from the reader, short answer questions, recipes, maps, tests and quizzes. A detailed glossary and answers are located in the back. Books are 62 pgs and workbooks 159 pgs. Veritas recommends Audio Memory Geography Songs to accompany this series, and these are included in the sets below Legends & Leagues South brings back the helpful Mr. Longitude and Mr. Latitude as they travel south encountering adventures including Dr. Livingstone, pirates, magic carpets, mermen, and much more! Covers an overview of continents and oceans before launching into Africa and the Middle East. Legends & Leagues East explores the continents of Asia and Oceania. Adventures include meeting dragons, fairies and Captain Nemo. Legend & Leagues North brings a feisty 7½ 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 meet them. Along the way she meets St. George, sea serpents, 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-tale adventure, 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

We enjoy the Leagues and Legends workbooks for a jumping off point for elementary study of different cultures of the world. I feel it works well with Trick Geography. We didn't enjoy the story books of Leagues and Legends. I found it was not necessary to use the story books with the workbooks.

Great introduction of Geography. We have greatly enjoyed the 2 previous books, and hopefully we'll use the rest of the books!
