You see, I know that once in a while it’s a little rough getting started (and yes, this is coming from someone who just LOVES to plan!).

Here’s a little background on the highlighted items above:

You’ll find Give Your Child the World to be an amazing resource for your homeschool this year. Whether you use it as a pure reading list, or to enhance geography or world culture studies, this is a true goldmine! The first 3 chapters alone give you a fascinating peek into the author’s life and open your mind and your heart to the concept of exploring this great big globe we call home. Subsequent chapters offer lists of books divided up by continent/region.

The Ultimate Travel Coloring Book was a serendipitous find at a local bookstore. Containing line drawings of 100 of the most famous places in the world, this is a great book to draw in your older children, as these illustrations are pretty involved. A neat feature of this book are the short descriptions of each place found in the back. If you’re not familiar with a locale, these provide a great jumping point for further study…

I can’t say enough about Wondermaps from Bright Ideas Press, very likely the capstone of this basket! If you’re a regular reader, you’ll recognize that I mention them time and again here and know that I use their maps extensively. Personally, I own this in their downloadable version, but for the purpose of our gift basket, we’re including the DVD version.

If you’re considering planning an International Day program for your local co-op, or even just putting one together with a bunch of your homeschooling friends, these mini-passports would be super-cute to include in your “traveler’s packet”! I found the one in the gift basket at Michael’s.

OK, ok, now how do I enter already?!

Just follow the easy-peasy directions below to get up to 5 entries…
