DID YOU KNOW WE PUBLISH HISTORICAL FICTION AND BIOGRAPHIES?!
GeoMatters first came on the scene in 1989 selling outline maps and Educational Insights products at small home school conferences.Today not only do we publish our own outline maps, Desk Atlas of the United States, and other titles, we are best known for the award-winning Trail Guide to Geography series.
Our current ongoing project is creating and producing the popular Trail Guide to Learning complete homeschool curriculum series with some of its supportive resources.
Along the journey we began producing historical fiction readers beginning with Adventures of Munford. The Munford books are delightful readers used with the Trail Guide to Learning.
Soon we added the Profiles from History series of biographies.
Then, recently we added two more great historical fiction books to our family; Eve of Revolution and Ambush in the Wilderness
Read on for a glimpse of Munford, or head on over to Munford’s webpage for more details.
Adventures of Munford Series—is a set of intriguing elementary readers and family read-aloud books, as seen through the eyes of an adventurous water molecule named Munford. Munford not only witnesses first-hand many of the landmark historical events that formed our nation, but he often lands right smack in the midst of the adventure.
Is he water, gas, or solid? Whether he is condensation on the side of a glass, steam from a tea kettle, or even sneezed right out of a fellow's nose, children love speculating how he will show up next. Beautiful watercolor illustrations throughout, plus an informative summary at the close of each book with facts surrounding the events depicted in the story.
Read on for a bit more info on the Profiles series.
Profiles from History Series—introduces your children to some real people from our history in a three volume set. Each book has 18-20 biographical sketches of the people who influenced the culture, development, and growth of our nation. Kids love the crossword puzzles, word searches, timeline figures that compliment each profiles and we love how the activities add interest and improves memory retention. See the samples tab for a list of the people covered and samples of the games and activities.
