Product Description:

This non-consumable publication contains a collection of 52 colorful and captivating illustrated maps from around the world. Each highly illustrated map includes not only basic geographical features and political borders, but also places of interest, references to notable personalities and peoples, pictures of native animals and plants, and cultural details from each region. This quality map collection is also utilized by Beautiful Feet Books as a standard part of their Around the World with Picture Books, Vol. 1 curriculum. This product will impart many useful facts and observations about various world cultures, influential people and animal life around the globe. It is not designed, however, to take the place of a conventional map collection that features more common geographical details. Measures 11" x 14", 105 pgs, hc. ~ Mike

Category Description for Around the World with Picture Books:

Introduce children to the fascinating and diverse world in which we live through delightful children’s books. Modeled after the Charlotte Mason philosophy of notebooking, this study focuses on the 4 R’s: reading, reasoning, relating and recording. Skills are age appropriate and gentle to engage and inspire children in the learning process. Geography, cultures, animals, folk tales and fables, music and art, are all covered, as are nature studies, poetry and recipes. Literature rich, the authors also provide additional literature and video resources to go deeper. Volumes are flexible for one semester (4 lessons/week) or one year (2 lessons/week). Beautifully illustrated with vibrant photographs and gorgeous art reproductions for the art studies. Black and white nature drawings are included and reproducible for individual families. Quality art supplies are recommended. Please note that a Japanese notebook, Tsubame, is recommended and sold by Beautiful Feet, but we currently do not offer it. ~ Deanne

HIGHLY recommended by my homeschooling sister. My child is very interested in different cultures and we can expand on this (in conjunction with Around the World with Picture Books) to make an entire unit Including literature, social studies, art, culinary, and music.

I wanted to use the Beautiful Feet Around the World With Picture Books (Part 1) curriculum, but didn't need all the picture books, so I ordered the guide and this, which is the spine of the box, so to speak. I am buying some of the picture books used, as well as borrowing some of them from our local library.

Best book of maps, ever!
This book is absolute amazing, the illustrations are so eye catching and lovely to see. It's a roaring success with my children, and to be perfectly honest, my husband and I really enjoy it as well.

Be aware of some pictures
Overall nice map book. Be aware that Finland and Poland have two pictures of women without shirts. One is in a sauna the other is a mermaid. Easy to fix but I was shocked when my 6 year old pointed it out.
