Product Details     Here is a belated review of Seabird by Holling C. Holling.  I loved the story, (I found myself tearing up at the end) but I had a hard time gleaning much geography from it.  Everything I've read from other CMers who have read it, raved about all the geography nuggets in it; so I kept thinking, "What am I missing?" 
     I think the only thing Anna got from it was what the equator is.  However, through coloring the map, she got a pretty good idea of what Continent is which.

     She used her beeswax crayons to color the map, and I think they made the map very beautiful.  It's still hanging up in our school area, although it wont be long before a new school year starts. 
    And speaking of that; I am very excited about studying Marco Polo this year.  I have always been fascinated with him and his story, so I can't wait to share that with Anna.  I think that is the best thing about homeschooling.  Getting to share your passions and interests with your children, and see them take their own things from it.
