New book series from Knowledge Quest!

We are so excited to let you know that we are the new publishers for a series of books entitled A Child's Geography.  There are currently two books in the series. 

Here are the details for the first volume:

A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth

by Ann Voskamp

Like you, we read. Lots. Old books are like good friends. Seton, and Burgess, and Holling….and Hillyer. Lots of V.M. Hillyer. I would gather the children and we would trek out into the world with Hillyer through his book, “A Child's Geography of the World” and go exploring God's world from the couch. We loved how Hillyer spoke directly to us, how we developed a relationship with the author himself, how he romped through the world, teaching us along the way. But we always had questions. Hillyer's geography was old—maybe too old? The world had changed. And we wanted to know what the world was like now. And we wanted to see God's Hand in it all — for the Earth and everything in it is His.        

Thus this project, a "living" geography primer for grammar age students, (gr.1/2--gr.6/7). “A Child's Geography: Exploring His Earth” is about getting to know what's under our feet, over our heads and in the world around us—the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the lithosphere—and then how to get around this world—maps, latitude and longitude. Do you know how many gallons of water float in a cloud over our head—how far it is to the center of the Earth—what causes magnificent auroras, God's love lights—how God used the Flood to puzzle our planet into different shifting plates? Well, hop on board to experience Adventures for the Inquisitive Child—and every excursion glorifies our breathtaking Creator!

 "A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth" is, in some ways, really like exploring and scouting out various routes before a grand trip! While scouting and surveying the grand scheme of things, the sciences of His Earth, our appetite is whetted for the real march out, the countries of this Earth. The anticipation builds as we learn about the workings and the ways of His Earth. Then,  having gained our bearings in "Explore His Earth," future volumes of "A Child's Geography" will follow the same traditional path of our chronological study of history, trekking through the countries of our world today.

Testimonials:

  • "I have purchased your books...looked through your website thoroughly...and think that the books are wonderful! I am always looking for truly excellent, Christ-centered materials. I couldn't agree more with Jeannie Fulbright's recommendation. I appreciate the niche you are filling as I have had a hard time find a Christian, living book, geography "text" to use!" ~Carrie Austin, Drawn into the Heart of Reading, a Cathy Duffy Top 100 Pick
  • This is such a lovely way to teach geography ~ just cuddle up with your little one and read. Having said that, I was surprised at the depth of information in this book. We colored the layers of the atmosphere, labeled them with their names and heights and there it was for us to see and absorb
    ( we're both visual learners! ) - Judy
  • I discovered Ann just as she was getting ready to publish the first volume of ACG (A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth). I was so thankful to have found it!!! It was wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. One of my favorite sources for sure! - Lisa

Heidi's Review:

I just received one of the neatest books in the mail that I’ve seen for awhile – A Child’s Geography by Ann Voskamp.  Why am I so impressed with this book? Well, it’s because I have looked high and low for a geography book that I can actually work with, one that will fit our schooling schedule, and one that is interesting and fun.  This book meets all of those criteria and more. 

A Child’s Geography is written in a Charlotte Mason-style.  Though I never actually set out to find Charlotte Mason-style books, I always find myself extremely attracted to them when I do find them!  Here are some of the things that impress me about A Child’s Geography:

·        It is set up to be used two days per week (you could do it in one but it would either take a lot of time or you would have to just pick and choose what you want to do)

·        It is written in a personal style – when reading it, you feel as though the author is talking to you personally

·        Each reading selection contains “Tell the folks at home all about it!” sections (which are prompts for the children to share what they have learned so far) and “Postcard Home” sections (which are “Notebooking” activities that your children do on oversized postcards)

·        After each reading selection, there is another section called “Reaching Out to His World” – these sections talk about ways that we, as Christians, can be praying for and helping those in the world who are less fortunate than we are

·        Book lists for extra reading are included in each lesson

·        Each lesson also contains two “Too-Fun-to-Resist Excursions”, which are easy-to-do activities that relate to the lesson and require very little preparation or materials, but are fun and effective learning tools

In addition to all of that, the book also comes with a bonus CD-ROM that includes several extra pages.  These include 27 pages of copywork activities that directly relate to the lessons in the book, 4 styles of copywork templates (for older and younger students, with or without sections for drawing), 5 different postcard templates (to be used with the Notebooking activities), 2 review tests, and more!

If you are in search of a geography book that is easy to work with, can be used with multiple age groups, and approaches geography from a Christian perspective, then I’m sure you’ll be impressed and pleased with A Child’s Geography.
