Wondermaps Review

I have been looking at this product for quite some time now so I was thrilled when Timberdoodle offered me the opportunity to review it. We love history here and so I am constantly looking for maps to print off the internet, which can be quite time consuming and frustrating to find exactly what I need to go along with what we are studying.

Enter Wondermaps from Bright Ideas Press: Problem Solved!

WonderMaps is designed with easy-to-use layers that allow you to enjoy great customizable features with just a click. Select:

  • historical or modern-day maps
  • outline, reference, political, or topographical maps
  • black-and-white or color maps
  • features including: names, borders, rivers, cities, physical features, and graticules

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
This year we are learning about Early American History and we were able to easily find and print a map of 13 colonies and then add the modern geographical boundaries. There are over 350 customize-able maps to choose from. Everything you could possible need right at your fingertips.

Here are a few screen shots from the program. You can use color or print in black and white for your child to fill in. Some of the other options include: Physical Features, Cities, Borders, and much more.

Wondermaps is very easy to install and use. Also included on the CD is a Teachers Guide and tutorial, as well as several other bonus features.

I think this could very well be the only map resource that our homeschool will ever need. I love how versatile the program is for a wide range of age groups and studies. This is a great program that I can highly recommend.

You can learn more about Wondermaps at Timberdoodle or Bright Ideas Press. Timberdoodle offers the Wondermaps CD for only $44.95. If you would like to learn more about Timberdoodle and the products they offer, be sure to order their Free Homeschool Catalog. You can also find them on Facebook.
