    Many years ago when I was a secondary school student, yep a long time ago, they taught geography as a class in school. I loved geography and maps and learning about people, places, and pretty much everything global. But I didn't enjoy giving oral reports which were required weekly. Reports on countries, weekly reader (our news source) reports, etc. This always caused moments of dread and insecurity. So I offer real heart-felt praise to kids who not only have the knowledge of world geography to he Many years ago when I was a secondary school student, yep a long time ago, they taught geography as a class in school. I loved geography and maps and learning about people, places, and pretty much everything global. But I didn't enjoy giving oral reports which were required weekly. Reports on countries, weekly reader (our news source) reports, etc. This always caused moments of dread and insecurity. So I offer real heart-felt praise to kids who not only have the knowledge of world geography to head for a Geography Bee (think "spelling bee" on steroids) but the personality to actually stand in front of people - large groups of people - and be judged for their knowledge. I also offer real thanks to the National Geographic Society for getting schools and private entities involved in the instruction of students in the subject of geography. For awhile, this was not available to students in schools and was a real deficit. Part of this renewed interest in the subject and focus on geography has been the annual National Geographic Bee. And students are preparing for this entertaining and challenging local, state, and national competition. Students in grades 4-8 who have amassed a lot of world geographic knowledge will compete. To prepare they not only pay close attention to what they learn in school, they glean knowledge from other sources as well. One of the best to ready them for this challenging competition is the How to Ace the National Geographic Bee. The book is packed with a plethora of maps, charts, pictures, statistics, and pertinent information bites that will most certainly prepare the most avid student for being an astute student of geography. Quite frankly, I am literally amazed at the amount of information this little book contains on this world, the countries, their capitals, the people, the land masses, the populations, etc. A real educational treasure. I received a complimentary copy to facilitate this review of my own opinions which are freely given.

    This week was Geography Awareness Week. I can't think of a better way to bring awareness about Geography then to highlight this book.

I can't think of a better way to bring awareness about Geography then to highlight this book. From National Geographic: Each year more than 100,000 Americans actively participate in Geography Awareness Week (GeoWeek). Established by presidential proclamation more than 25 years ago, this annual public awareness program organized by National Geographic Education Programs (NGEP) encourages citizens young and old to think and learn about the significance of place and how we affect and are affected by it. Each third week of November, students, families and community members focus on the importance of geography by hosting events; using lessons, games, and challenges in the classroom; and often meeting with policymakers and business leaders as part of that year’s activities. Geography Awareness Week is supported by year-long access to materials and resources for teachers, parents, community activists and all geographically minded global citizens. Students in grade 4-8 from over 10,000 schools across our nation compete every year in the National Geographic Bee. The deadline to register your school for the state bee is January 26, 2018, with the State Bees being held April 6, 2018. Winners then travel to Washington D.C. for the National Geographic Bee from May 20-23, 2018, its 30th year in existence. Our school has never participated in this, but I know it is something our kids would have done if they had offered it. Even if you aren't interested or don't have an opportunity to participate in a Geographic Bee, this is still a great book to have in your school or home library. This book can be used at the dinner table for discussion or for studying in your homeschool. Kids that like trivia books or learning about various countries and world demographics will enjoy reading and answering the questions in the book. The book begins with laying out how the Geographic Bee works and some study tips. It offers maps and tips for learning various landscapes, populations, languages, and other physical features of various continents. The next sections offer questions much like the Geographic Bee would ask. Numerous pages of various book and online resources are shared for further study. The end of the book includes a map of each continent with all the countries marked and then basic stats about each country. In my quick skim through the questions, I did ok with the questions about the United States. But, once the questions asked about what country borders the Adriatic Sea or do the snow egrets or chimpanzees live in the mangrove forests, I knew I was not as knowledgeable about our world as I should be. I think this book will encourage kids and adults to learn more about habitats, countries, and nature and encourage kids to research when a question piques their interest. It has certainly given me some motivation to throw some of these questions out to our kids (7th grader, 11th grader, and 12th grader) to see what they know. Maybe you will enjoy this book enough to get your school to start hosting a Geographic Bee! If nothing else, it will encourage an interest in learning more about the world we live and interact in.

    I am so excited to work through this atlas with my kiddos. What makes this book so cool is that it is so different than other books. You may not be competing in a geography bee, but you can learn and study like you are. The chapters are The Why of Where, Bee Basics, Top Ten Study Tips, Conquering The Questions, Tips From Bee Finalists and Resources Genghis Khan Would Have Loved, as well as Notes To Teachers, Answers and Countries of the World Index. This book is filled with pictures, charts and I am so excited to work through this atlas with my kiddos. What makes this book so cool is that it is so different than other books.

This book is filled with pictures, charts and stats. I am always looking for ways to keep the learning going over the winter months and into spring to supplement what they learn at school. This book is going to be a HUGE hit! I cannot get over how jam packed with facts, maps and other tidbits this book is. You will get to explore so much. I love that the facts are written in a way that is easy to understand. Adults and kids alike will get lost pretending that they are training for the bee and will learn so much cool and interesting information. So awesome!!! 5 HUGE stars
