We LOVE music in our house. I was a music minor in college and love to sing all the time. My kids have also gained a love of music and are excited to use it in school. I really enjoy finding music that teaches me kids. I have heard countless times that music aids in learning. I discovered a wonderful site that sells some great educational music called Kathy Troxel -Audio Memory. It is a family run business and she even homeschooled her kids! I have seen great reviews of her CD’s online. They have a lot of CD’s with songs for learning all the different subjects. There are ones on history, grammar, math, Bible, geography, and more. They also have some on DVD, too! I contacted Kathy about doing a review of her Geography Songs set. She very kindly said yes- and offered another set for a giveaway, too! I was thrilled! See below for the giveaway details.
When we got the Geography songs, I was excited to see the book and large map (25″ x 36″) that came with it. The set for all three items (book, CD, map) is $22.95. The book has all of the song lyrics as well as pictures and maps to go along with each song. It is in black and white, so it can also be used as a coloring book for your kids. The map is also in black and white so kids can color it as they learn and listen.
The CD has 33 songs. Each song is about a different area of the world. The songs are really catchy and I find myself and my kids singing them around the house all the time! We have been taking the CD in the car with us to listen to as we drive around town. I had my son get a little video of my daughter singing along with the book in the car.

In the book, there are the song lyrics as well as coloring pages related to each area about the song. There is also a map of each place so you can see the area being sung about. At the end of the book there are some “tests” to quiz what the kids have learned with fill in the blank pages and a crossword puzzle.
We are loving this set and will probably be purchasing more of them in the future. My kids are already arguing about which one to get next 😉 I am so happy to have had the chance to try this out and share it with you here. My kids are learning so much more about our world from these fun songs!
