Geography Matters is a diverse home-based company owned and operated by Josh and Cindy Wiggers. They create, write, publish, laminate, and distribute a dozen books, 18 map titles, and 15 CD-ROMS, and are, as far as we are concerned, the premier resource for homeschool geography materials. Started in 1989 with a few geography items and two "Mark-It Map" titles, they have since added more than 15 titles and a number of map sets, written and published geography curriculum guides, provide a number of items in eBook format, and designed an award winning reproducible outline map book (and CD-ROM). They continue to add more titles—both ones written by them and by other authors. Their goal is to lend a hand to parents and teachers at "helping children develop a delight for learning," therefore the products they produce and recommend are those which keep that focus in mind.
There are currently three Yahoo groups for products from Geography Matters. These groups offer ideas and tips and the site is a great place to share teaching experiences or receive input to your questions. You are invited to join the online discussion group for users of (and those interested in):
