While enjoying lunch at a beachside restaurant this summer I overheard this conversation:
Lady: My mom is in Haiti distributing medication.
Man (who was obviously an authority on everything): Did you know that it has the highest rate of AIDS in the world? She should be careful.
Lady: Really? I would have thought a country in Africa would.
Man: Well, Haiti is in Africa.
Lady: Um... I don't think so...
Man: Well, it's off the coast of Africa
And that, my friends, is another reminder of the importance of geography lessons.
So where in the world...can you find a quality world globe? Check out CSN. Remember the little product review I mentioned earlier? This is what I chose to review. They have everything you could imagine and I was imagining a raised relief globe. I was very pleased for several reasons.
The size. It is a 9" which is the perfect size: not too big, not too small.
The color. I really wanted an antique looking one, so that when my homeschooling days are over, I could use it to accent my home.
The details. It has up-to-date political boundaries clearly marked for our geographical needs. Like finding Haiti and Africa.
If you are in the market for a world globe this Replogle Roosevelt Globe is a gem.
Want a 12" blue ocean? They have it. Want a kid friendly version? They have it. Want a cool black starlight globe? They have it.
Within a week of ordering, it was on my doorstep. I love efficiency. And geography.
