Good book May 12, 2007
My son is going through this with lot of enthusiasm. Well structured and very popular amongst others.
Great fun! Great knowledge for mom and son!! Apr 17, 2007
This book is really neat. I love it. I learn so much every time I sit down with it. It is divided into parts for US questions, World questions and I can't recall what else. It comes complete with maps and it's very user friendly. I am not so strong in geography. When my son in grade 7 was second in a geography bee, I decided that he and I should brush up. So I got this book from this site and I do like it. I think the authors have put a lot of care and interest in this book and if you desire to strengthen your geo knowledge, this is the book for you.

This book is in a user-friendly format that is easy for studying. The questions are divided into different sections such as US information, places to know on the map,Tidbits of information, and then random questions. It isvery helpful.
A Must Have Car Book Nov 10, 2006
What a great book to take along in the car on a trip. Good questions for adults to ask each other while driving long distance and something for the kids to enjoy also. Good, short questions about the world that you probably knew most of the answers to but forgot. Skip the fast food drive-thru, get the book. The Geography Bee book is a better buy.
Really good Feb 24, 2006
I'm using this to teach my 7 and 6 years old children about geography. Really good starting point to prepare for the bee.
