This would be great to win! Thank You

Shanna said...

We're just getting started homeschooling so I know we will use this over and over. It looks like it has everything I need for maps. I'd love to check out their other books too.

Marie Therese said...

Didn't win last time! Oh, how I would love to win this!!

Robin A. said...

We have been looking for a quality map set to go with our very eclectic homeschool :) This one fits the bill perfectly! I will be able to teach on one geographic location through all the time periods seamlessly with your book. Hard to find one program that allows this kind of flexibility.

Kathy said...

I would really love to win this. My kids are junior high and high school, and this would be fun. I have the black line maps that were done before this, and would really like to upgrade.

Thanks

cyber-istari said...

Oh, I've been drooling over their stuff for years. And I like the hardcover - that would help my dd keep everything together, better than in a binder.

Carrie said...

This would be a great addition to my homeschool - especially this year because my high schooler is studying World Geography and my middle schoolers are doing US Geography!! :)

tawnya said...

I love your maps! I have used your occasional free maps with the Konos History of the World classes I teach. This year, we're back to Ancient History and a new sequence begins...I would LOVE to have the whole map set! Sign me up, please.:)
Blessings,

I've already been to their site, and LOVED everything!!! So many really neat things! I would love to win this, as I am homeschooling 2 children now, and will add another to the mix in a couple years. Seeing maps and such make learning so much more engaging! Thanks for the offer!

Knowledge Quest has a lot of great things on their site to help with Geography which is nice because my son loves geography and although I love it too never really studied it! Any additional help I can get in teaching my son geography just makes my love (and his) grow! This sounds like a great resource!

JaxJen said...

This looks amazing! I am excited that I will be starting the school year with both my older child and my kindergartner, and I'd love to have a resource like this.

Janice said...

I would love to use this with my kids this coming year! I love geography and this looks like an excellent program.

Just visited the site. Love the fact that the maps are chronological in sequence. We use the classical method in our homeschool and this fits perfectly. Would LOVE to win this and use them with our chronological history program:)

I love Knowledge Quest! I found them this summer and have been looking forward to using some of their products! The thing I love about this product is the maps from different time periods. You can have a map for the way things are now and the way they used to be. Love this product and I would LOVE to win it! Thank you!!

Mona said...

We've been wanting to do more geography. it's fun but the creative ways your present it makes it very appealing. thank you!

judi said...

Oh my!!! I've been wanting this for a while and haven't been able to afford it. I was working on some History with my younger kids just the other day and I couldn't find a map for something they were doing. I checked my sample of Map Trek and saw that they have just the right map but it's not part of the sample.

Karine Josien said...

I would love to win this, we are studying modern history next year and it would be so useful to have those maps to work with.

Gretchen said...

I love the Knowledge Quest products! I've bought a lot from their website already. I'd love to have this too.

Jyl said...

I really like the look of Map Quest. I think they would be really helpful for geography.

iradi8 said...

We are a homeschooling family and this looks wonderful! We traveled to the 48 contiguous states last year in our RV. So, I would love to win this:)

I visited the Knowledge Quest website as required.

Anonymous said...

This looks incredible! We are also studying the 50 states and are expanding our study of countries other than our own - this would take care of both of those curricula with one program! I would love to win it!!

I have collected Nat'l Geog. maps for years and have been trying to put them up in the boys' room. I would love to have something to put our hands on with no worries!!:)) Map Trek looks awesome:))

cking said...

This looks like an awesome resource. I have a map trek app on my ipod and would love to use these tools in addition to the app. I am looking to refigure my budget so I can try to purchase this!!

Connie said...

I want my children to understand that God's children extend beyond this land we live in and He desires ALL of them to come to know Him :) So this would help us understand other lands better!

Chris "CD" Darnell said...

My son learned very little about the states in public school and I am taking up the slack with homeschooling this year! This would be an amazing addition to his curricula!!!

blessedbeyond said...

I love this product! For the matter we love all your products. I would love a chance to use this with my girls. I think it would help pull together so many things in an easy to use format. I know my girls would love it! We will keep our fingers crossed. God Bless, Thowell

Heather F said...

So cool. I would love to get this since I want my kids to love geography as much as I do.

Shannon P said...

I would love to win this. Sooner or later we will probably buy it anyway, because it looks like an invaluable resource!

Grace Whisperer said...

I love all the Knowledge Quest Maps. I've been drooling over them for months, but haven't purchased them yet!

Gigi Lynn said...

I've always wanted to have this for my children, but so far, I haven't been able to win it! Thanks for another chance!

Jamie said...

This book has been on my wish list for a long time. My kids really love geography and history and this would be a great resource for us!

Ree said...

My daughter loves maps, and we're learning about different cultures. This would be a perfect resource for our starting homeschool

Andrea said...

This would be a perfect resource for our homeschooling family, especially for our two middle-grade kids. We've used Knowledge Quest products in the past, and they are always excellent quality!

Donna said...

I would really love to win. It looks awesome and we are always looking for great homeschool materials.

Linda said...

I love Knowledge Quest! This resource would work great with our history and geography curriculum.

We have tried several of these maps from samples & love them. What a blessing the whole set would be. Thanks for the chance to win!

hsreviewsjust4you said...

I spent quite a while researching this product and found it so intriguing that I actually contacted you to see if I could write a review about it. I would love the opportunity to use this program. I will definitely let my readers know about this contest! Thank you for your generosity.

Lisa @ Me & My House said...

Would love to win this - having all the maps we need for all our studies in one place. No hunting them down.

Anonymous said...

I hate to admit it but when trying to teach my kids geography/history I am lost. They have no idea how much resesarch and planning I have to do before I teach it to them.

Having something like this would be a Gods blessing for me. We could get so much more done if I didn't have to do so much serching.

Melissa said...

What I would love most about this program is the grid that helps kids learn to draw different parts of the world--SO much learning potential there!

Roberta said...

What a great resource! We will be studying American History this next year and these maps would be wonderful to use. I like how they are chronologically set up. Thank you!

jennifer said...

this is on my list of wants! thanks for doing this giveaway!!!

Mary said...

I've been looking at this for a few years and it's something we could use over and over and over. So much information!

Katrina said...

I'd like to win this set because it is BEAUTIFUL! These are some of the best maps I've seen, and would make it SO much easier for our geo. studies (rather than me scouring the internet to find decent free maps).

jksteelefam (at) gmail (dot) com

Christy said...

It is so hard to find the exact kinds of maps you need for homeschooling. Blank maps that students can fill in on their own would be a great addition to our schooling.

B said...

looks like a great program to teach my kids with!

CarolR said...

We are studying American History this year and World History next year. None of the history curricula cover geography as well as I think they should. This would be a wonderful addition!

Stephanie said...

My oldest son, who hates to read and complains about doing math absolutely LOVES maps. He traces them, draws them from memory, and has recently started adding interstates to his drawings. This would be the one book I wouldn't have to make him sit down and do - he would probably work through all of the maps in one school year! I'm entering this drawing because it would make a wonderful birthday present for him.

CarynB said...

I'd love to win because you guys make the most incredible and easy to use maps I've ever seen! We first fell in love with the products you made for Tapestry of Grace and now that we've switched curricula I need your new products! 8-) Love everything you make!

Blessings,
Caryn

Shannon P said...

This looks like something we would use over and over again!

Debbie said...

What a great resource. I have never included maps because it takes so long to find what I need. Here is everything all in on book.

Sue said...

I'd love to win because I know we would use them! I love maps, and I love Knowledge Quest products!

Rhonda Hopper said...

I do not have a good background in geography, so this resource will help me and my children really know about the world.

Jessica said...

This would be a great resource to use with our history curriculum!

TN Quiltbug said...

I am just starting with a first grader, so know I would use it a lot! smenzmer(at)gmail(dot)com

CrystalZ said...

I would love to win this set. It would be a tremendous help in teaching my kids geography!

I'm so desperate to win this! Have been salivating over it all spring and summer. This would come in handy with our entire curriculum!

Knowledge Quest makes great products. I would love to have this set for my 3 children!

Karen Demaree said...

History and geography are two of our favorite subjects. Maps adorn our walls. We use earlier publications of yours. This set would be a great addition.

Heather Brandt said...

This looks like something I could use with my preschooler who is interested in geography now as well as for years to come!
