          Our family loves maps, preferred over the latest electronic technology. Great teaching tool. Our kids are now grown with kids of their own. This map is a great go-to resource when world events occur. We can easily find where the events are occurring and see how these events affect surrounding countries.

                        Did a lot of research before selecting this map for father's day present for my husband's office wall. We liked that it is up-to-date and includes many different cities, compared to others we looked at. Inset maps at sides are interesting too.
