Timberdoodle Review: Wondermaps


Recently, I was asked to review WonderMaps from Bright Ideas Press for Timberdoodle Co.  I literally JUMPED at the chance to review this item.  WonderMaps is one of the BEST accessories any homeschooling family can have. 

This what my screen looks like when I start Wondermaps.


WonderMaps is just that: wonderful maps included in one quick download or on a convenient disk for use with any history program available.  With WonderMaps, the user can pick the features they want displayed and then print off the needed maps to use as necessary.  Maps of Ancient lands to today's modern landscape are available for the user to print.  Outline, political, topographical, and even reference maps are included in either black and white or color, including names of specific elements as the user sees fit to create.

WonderMaps includes 60+ state maps, 60+ country maps, 125 historical maps and includes 25 biblical maps.  There are also complete map sets created for use with Mystery of History Vols 1-3 and All American History Vols 1-2. 



I am personally using this wonderful resource with Tapestry of Grace and Mystery of History for our Ancient History lessons this year.  These maps have been a wonderful introduction for us.  They were extremely simple to create and print out.  I love that I can add as many features as I feel necessary and remove as much as I need to too!  Starting out with history, I try to keep maps simple so as not to overwhelm my children and reprint more detailed maps as we expand on that topic.  With WonderMaps I can easily print out just what I need. 

To learn more about WonderMaps and see it for yourself you can watch this short little video created by Bright Ideas Press explaining how to use this software.
