Passport to the World: Your A to Z Guided Language Tour Review by Christine Hindle

Passport to the World is a beautiful hardcover book with 65 glossy pages. It is "your A to Z Guided Language Tour." The book is set up by languages, with each spread focusing on a different language/country. For example, on the spread for "Mandarin, a language spoken in China," there are color photographs of people, money, objects, and countryside; a map; a flag; statistics; and other information. There is a little insert that tells how to say hello, goodbye, thank you, and peace in Mandarin.

In the front of the book is a little pocket that contains a passport, and in the back of the book are "Passport Stamp" stickers for each country you visit in the book. These are very high-quality items that we are eager to include in our geography study.

My granddaughter looked over this book, and she loved it so much. I had to insist that she not carry it off with her until we got a chance to use it with our geography lessons. She wanted it in her personal collection.

I can't say enough good things about this book. It is a "must have" to accompany your geography curriculum. What a great resource for homeschoolers! This book sells for $15.99 on the Master Books website, and I consider that an excellent value for such a valuable learning tool.
