Review:

If you have ever labored to find a blank map you could reproduce and hand out as your students are studying a region, time in history, or as a related activity in science or literature, Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book is definitely a must-have resource. With a durable, soft-cover binding for ease of copying, this up-to-date compilation of more than 100 outline maps covers the whole world! Continents, countries, regions, and a state by state rendering of the U.S.A. put even the most remote area at your fingertips. The authors have paid careful attention to accuracy and detail latitude and longitude lines are included where possible, rivers are lightly shaded, and oceans and larger bodies of water are also shaded to make the outlines easier to use and to enhance reference points. --Homeschool Enrichment

The book contains all the maps I can think of that we might need in the course of our education. As a bonus, there are also two pages of "General Instructions" with ideas for using maps in studying history, geography, literature, and science; and "Helpful Hints for Amazing Activities" that help students and teachers get the most out of the maps. A well-organized Table of Contents makes individual maps easy to find.

This is one of those resources that will serve your needs year after year, whether you are learning by way of unit studies or textbooks, unschooling or "living books" or anything in between! --Eclectic Homeschool Online

It seems that the need for a blank outline map presents itself at the most inopportune times like the night before I'm ready to teach something in History and realize I could really use a map for the kids to better visualize the topic being covered! Thankfully, the father and daughter team of George and Hanna Wiggers has come to the rescue with Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book.

With over 100 clear, reproducible outline maps to choose from, you're sure to find one to go with whatever you are studying! Speaking of "whatever you are studying" under the benign title of "General Instructions" at the beginning of the book, the authors have given us a treasure great suggestions for using outline maps. There are two pages of suggestions for mapping activities for History, Literature, Science, and (of course!) Geography, as well as a few mapping hints for students and teachers. --Cindy Pretchel, Editor, Homeschooling From The Heart
