Helping your child learn Geography

The following information comes from an older, but very useful booklet, produced by the US Geological Survey and US dept of Education: "Helping Your Child Learn Geography". It is in public domain and so duplication rights are allowed. I used this booklet for years...gave many copies to parents at back to school night or during parent/teacher conferences... to encourage the teaching of geography at home.

The whole booklet 9for download) can be found at the following website:

This booklet has a useful list of geography based literature picture/reading/story books and other resources (some outdated) the back of the book ..
