Giveaway: A Child’s Geography by Ann Voskamp


It’s the middle of the year and you’ve hit your hump. You’re beat. Not another mad dash to throw together an impromptu unit study, please. You just want something easy that you can open up and teach to the children.

How about a little geography?

I have a very gently used (nearly like-new) copy of Ann Voskamp’s A Child’s Geography: Explore His Earth right here in my hands, ready to give away to one of you. It’s a lovely book, but we’ve decided that it’s not a good fit for our family, so I’d like to bless someone with it. Retail value new: $32.95

Our can read an overview of A Child’s Geography here.

Briefly: 11 chapters, each including a read aloud, a book list for further study, hands-on activities, and suggestions for notebooking/narrations. In the book you will find a cd-rom full of printables to use with it. You can do a little or a lot, but the great thing is that it’s the perfect length to fit in between now and June. ;0)

Giveaway open to US residents in the 48 contiguous states (sorry folks, my shipping budget is limited). Ends midnight EST on 3/9/12

Update: my Rafflecopter widget has gone kaflooey, so I've removed it. ;0)

We'll make this easy peasy: just leave me a comment below telling me why you want the book. Make sure you leave me contact info. ;0)

Disclosure: This is an unsponsored giveaway, the book came off my own book shelf where is was sitting collecting dust.


  1. Would love a copy! Still have one at home and sometimes school is dry and boring... would love a little spice this time of year.

    Thanks for giving away your copy!

  2. I've had my eye on this book for a while, I'd love to win a copy :) Thanks for this giveaway opportunity.

  3. I stumbled upon your blog today. I think my daughter would love to learn about God's creation thru this book. And Ann Voskamp is great! Thanks for being willing to give it away!

  4. I think this would be a great item for our homeschool. I think it would add a great deal.

  5. I've heard a lot of great things about this book. Would love a copy to try out.

  6. Would love to try this book out; it looks wonderful.

  7. I would love to try a new program! We use Seton and my two little guys are tired of workbooks. And you wouldn't have to ship to me. :)


  8. Sounds like a fund hands-on, literature-rich way of studying geography.

  9. I would LOVE A COPY!!! We LOVE geography!!! :)

  10. We would LOVE to win this curriculum! I didn't even know it existed and it sounds wonderful! I am currently reviewing a Charlotte Mason style curriculum and this would be a perfect supplement. We do NOT have a geography curriculum at this time but I would like to start using one soon. I have been drawn to living books and haven't yet found a geography book that meets our needs. I have not added geography lessons into our day yet but I definitely would try this with Alyssa. She also REALLY enjoys copywork so the CD would be beneficial to our homeschooling needs ... very odd but she does. I love the fact that the book is Christ-centered! We just finished up another unit on God's Creation so this curriculum would be a perfect follow-up and give her the opportunity to explore many new concepts. I can also adapt if needed. I read through the information on the website and tried to download the sample but it was not working properly. I may also be able to use this curriculum with my friend ... she has children between the ages of 2-9. It would be great to do activities once or twice a week together. We appreciate the opportunity!
    God bless,

  11. I have been hoping to purchase this book, but with hubby out of work we need to make due with what we have on hand.

    I'd love to win a copy!

  12. I would love to win this book for my son

    Thank you for this giveaway
