Comments about U.S. Political Map (Bright-colored), Enlarged and Laminated:
I was very excited to get this wonderful map, but am very disappointed that the dark color (not what I would call bright)makes it difficult to read. It is on my kitchen wall which the grandkids enjoy, but it's not as interactive as I had hoped.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
