Little Passports is a great geography resource for your elementary-aged child (recommended for ages 5-10). The initial Explorer Kit comes with a cute little travel suitcase containing a passport, a world wall map, an introductory letter from the travelers Sofia and Sam, an activity sheet, stickers, and a boarding pass that allows you to access online games and activities I was also provided with the first two months' packets for review. If you subscribe to this program, your child will receive one packet each month. The packets include a letter from Sofia and Sam, a souvenir, an activity sheet, a picture from the country, a passport stamp, a map marker, a suitcase sticker and a boarding pass. (The Japan packet we received contained papers and instructions for origami. The Brazil packet contained a mineral/rock sample.)

The countries for the year include: Brazil, Japan, France, Egypt, Australia, Mexico, South Africa, India, England, China, and Argentina.

My granddaughters love this program. Their mom and I liked it so much we ordered a subscription for the rest of the year. This makes studying geography so much fun! We traveled quite a bit as a family while we were in Europe, so the passports and boarding passes make it seem very authentic. And it's great to have the crafts and souvenirs and activities to make it more interesting. I can't say enough good things about this product! This is what makes homeschooling so much fun. You can pay a lump sum payment or be billed monthly for the packets. The 12-month program (Globetrotter package) is $131.40 or $10.95 per month. I think the price is very reasonable for the enjoyment and learning that you receive.

Warning: date() []: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 146
