Are all children natural explorers? I’m not sure, but in my family they are. So the book, Let’s Go The Story Of Getting From There To Here by Lizann FLatt, was a wonderful read for us. From the Ice Age to Aerospace it is a playful, presently written look at how people have traveled in America from its start. USA history and geography rolled into one fun volume that gives a smart overview of our transportation and exploration history. I would strongly suggest this book as a gentle introduction to US history or a supplement for the younger kids when big brother or sister are studying the subject.
If your children are like mine I also suggest a USA and World map in addition to a globe. I scored two large laminated maps in beautiful muted colors at Costco this summer for only $14.99 something I hear are a regular find so keep your eye out. We have the U.S. Map up in our family room and the Wold map in the children’s bedroom. This has provided hours of imaginative play for my little treasure hunters and a nature understanding of geography that I know I didn’t have at their age. If you are homeschooling or not, I suggest adding this wonderful tools to your home.
