Wonder Maps Review

My 8th grade son is learning to draw the continents and label the countries, states, and provinces.  He is also learning some of the features such as mountains and rivers.  Sometimes finding an accurate map with all that information takes many hours of internet research. Many hours that I do not have.

The opportunity came up for me to review WonderMaps by Bright Ideas Press courtesy of the fine folks at Timberdoodle.  Oh, oh, oh, seriously this program fell into my lap at just the right time.

WonderMaps includes:
  • 60+ maps of the world
  • 60+ maps of the USA
  • 125 historical maps, including 25 biblical maps
  • The complete map sets from The Mystery of History vols. I–III and All American History vols. I & II
That is over 350 maps!  The best part of all is that you can customize the maps to include whatever you want!  If you want towns and cities included - they can be with one click or if you choose not to include them - again you can with one click.  If you just want to print blackline maps - yep, one click!  Other features include rivers, borders, terrain, and graticules.

Here is a tutorial on how WonderMaps works.

Wondermaps can be purchased for $44.95 and earning you 45 Doodle Dollar Points! For more information on Doodle Dollar points click here.  You can find many other geography helps including puzzles, games, and curriculum here.

As I said previously, this product to our family is priceless.  I love, love, love it!! It is now a permanent part of our homeschool curriculum. I am learning so much about Geography as well!  

Here is Jonathan (8th grade) practicing tracing and drawing South America.

As a member of Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team I received a free copy of WonderMaps in exchange for a frank and unbiased review.
