Comments about United States Explorer Map, Laminated:
I use the US State map to reinforce what my kids are learning in school. I've posted it on the wall in the kitchen where we eat dinner and use it to talk about current affairs and locations of friends, relatives and weather events. The distinct colors make it easy for even a 5yr old to have fun participating.
