Resources to help
you navigate through
history, geography
and homeschooling
(catalog is hyperlinked!)
2011 Catalog

Greetings from the Johnson family! We are a homeschool-
ing family with six children. We love educating our children at home and have
been doing so for nearly 13 years. We have used various methods and curricula
throughout the years, but have often found that a resource we wished for simply
didn’t exist. These holes in the homeschool marketplace are what led us to create
some of the materials that you will find within the pages of this linked catalog.
We began our business - Knowledge Quest, Inc. - in 2001 with the desire
to produce simple black and white maps that children could label and color while
studying both world and American history. I can still remember that first map
packet that we had copied at our local print shop :-). Our efforts eventually expand-
ed into producing 10 foot wall timelines, a hardcover timeline book, a historical bi-
ography series along with some additional geography resources that would delight
the whole family. This year marks our 10th year in business - time flies!
We have enjoyed working with other authors to bring you the best resources
possible in the fields of history and geography. Recently, however, we became
troubled by all of the uncertainty and doubt we were hearing from fellow home-
school parents when they would call to inquire about books and products for their
families. More often than not, the conversation would turn to other subjects, the
most common being the fear of making mistakes and not
feeling confident about their curriculum decisions, teaching
methods and learning styles.
We stumbled upon the idea of teaching homeschool-
ing parents how to homeschool with confidence and our
Homeschooling ABCs class was born. We now have a high
school level class as well. This is an exciting time to be ho-
meschooling and we are pleased that the Lord is leading us
to be of greater help in the lives of others.
We hope that you enjoy perusing this catalog.
Please feel free to send any comments or questions to us at

A Little About Us

A Child’s
by Ann Voskamp
Let’s Go!
A Child’s Geography: Explore His Earth is, in some
ways, really like exploring and scouting out various routes
before a grand trip! While scouting and surveying the grand
scheme of things - the sciences of our Earth - our appetite is
whetted for the real march out - the countries of this Earth.
The anticipation builds as we learn about the workings and
the ways of His Earth. Then, having gained our bearings in
Explore His Earth, future volumes of “A Child’s Geography”
will follow the same traditional path of our chronological study
of history, trekking through the countries of our world today.

your family probably hears or reads about these names
frequently. In an increasingly complex world, it is vitally
important that children learn to see the world through their
Creator’s eyes. As we explore the Holy Land you and your
family will delight in incredible, mysterious landscapes,
hidden wonders and beautiful peoples - all created in
God’s image. We will travel through the lands of Scripture,
discovering familiar Biblical landmarks, such as the possible
resting place of Noah’s Ark, the remains of the Tower of
Babel, the tracks of Moses up to the peak of Mount Sinai.
A Child’s Geography: Explore the Holy Land includes a
bonus CD-ROM with reproducible pages.
“I’ve read through all 275
pages of A Child’s Geogra-
phy: Explore the Holy Land.
And this really IS the best
geography guidebook I’ve
seen for the K-6th grade set.

Do you not have room for a wall timeline, but still
want the benefits of creating one with your stu-
dents? Here is a solution for you. History comes
alive when your student records significant histori-

to the present will allow your student to gain a
better understanding of the flow of history. He will
make connections between historical events by
recording entries across academic subjects—king-
doms, empires, rulers, scientists, literature, great
writers, musicians, and
so much more—all can
be recorded into his own
personal book of history.

Master World
Geography in
Just 7 Months
This is my seven month plan that will help you help
your students master world and U.S. geography in
just seven months. Follow this step-by-step program
and take my challenge over the course of the next
seven month time period. If your students have not
drastically improved in their knowledge of geography,
please write to me and tell me that I am off my rocker
and that it doesn’t work. On the contrary, if you do
see dramatic improvement, even mastery, in geogra-
phy, let me know that also. I would like to celebrate
with you in this wonderful accomplishment! Here’s

Math Can Be Fun!
Many times, the subject of math can cause some
real struggles for our children. I will admit that we
have shed many tears over our math books. BUT
THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE!! Yes, new math
concepts can be hard to learn, but when we make
math fun, it brings laughs instead of tears. This mini-
ebook (just 21 pages) will help you to see math in a
whole new way and give you that burst of inspiration
for teaching new math concepts.
This ebook is just one lesson pulled from our Home-
schooling ABCs online class for homeschool parents.
