Normally I get excited about the different books Broxton gets to review, but this time... I am totally stoked to get to review this book... and maybe a bit more for me than for him.  I know, I know, I am just telling the truth!!!
We were recently sent the book, History of the World with Google Earth and I am so excited to dive into this book!  I was all giddy with excitement when I read the opening pages... 


To be honest, from time to time, I like to " go on vacation" and I will sit online and google different images and information about different area's that I would love to visit one day.  
I mean, how much money am I saving as I jet set all over the world through the internet???  Well - now I can have a bit of fun with Broxton as we "fly" all over and get to have an adventure that is more than just looking at the pictures. We went to New York City, Mississippi and England tonight alone!!
In this book, you start and have puzzle challenges.  
There are 11 different time periods that you will visit. 

As you visit, you get to to do many activities.  Some of them are word search, some are spotting things in pictures... that is just in the book!  There is also a paragraph telling you about the area and time - but then you go online (based on the coordinates) and learn even more about the area!!!
It has been so fun and that was just skimming over the book!  I plan to take work on one area per day... just as an added bit of fun for us to "explore" the area around us!  

Do you ever "travel" through the internet?
