I recently was given the book “I Used to Know That Geography: stuff you forgot from school” for the purpose of review.
I have previously reviewed two eBooks, also from Reader’s Digest, and they were fabulous. So I was eager to dig into this geography book.
Overall, I found the book was full of information, and presented in a very clear way. There are lots of pages of information, including:
The only thing about the book that didn’t work for our family was in the earlier part of the book, there is a chapter titled, “Welcome to Planet Earth” which describes things as billions of years ago. Since our family views things on a biblical timeline, this does not fit with what we are teaching our children.
However, if you look past those areas, you will find yourself with a book full of information about the wonderful world we live in.
