The study of geography isn't particularly intuitive. It comes with its own set of vocabulary and principles that, while not as complex and interdependent as trigonometry or calculus, still demands a level of familiarity before engagement on any meaningful level. It's not hard to achieve this familiarity, but it is a prerequisite.
Books in this category are intended to introduce kids to the study of geography in such a way that they become interested in it and are equipped to investigate it. Most combine workbook-style pages with text to read, though a resource like The Book of Where is text-only with some possible exercises included to help students hone their new skills.
Review by C. Hollis Crossman
C. Hollis Crossman used to be a child. Now he is a husband and father, teaches adult Sunday school in his Presbyterian congregation, and likes weird stuff. He might be a mythical creature, but he's definitely not a centaur.Read more of his reviews here.
