Schoolside Press is the publisher of The Little Man in the Map. I have been hearing about this book for some time, but never actually got to see it. UNTIL NOW, that is! The Little Man in the Map is a beautiful hardbound book that will help your children learn US geography in very little time. I’ve never seen a book quite like it. I love books for children that are set to rhyming verse; so The Little Man in the Map was not a disappointment.
Each member of the Homeschool Crew (including alternates) received a copy of The Little Man in the Map, so I won’t bore you all with my assessment of the book. Instead, we’ll let the Crew share their thoughts with you……
- Penny says: My 11-year-old raced through the book the day it arrived, smiling and giggling all the way through it, turning the book so that I could see illustrations she thought were especially clever.
- Zindra says: This is a book that I will continue to use with my children because it is a fun, painless way to learn US geography! It is a fantastic book that is superbly illustrated.
- RegeniaS says: I love that it is in picture book format, taking just minutes to read and enabling older kids to use it as a tool for memorization. It is a book which when read over and over can only enrich your education of US geography in a delight filled way.
