Dove Review

All Over the Map is a delightful and educational travel show suitable for kids and families. Finally, a travel show that is appropriate for the whole family to watch together! The host, Peter Schriemer, is dubbed “America’s Nature Guy” for good reason—he really knows his stuff! His presentation style is clean, clear, and quick moving, which packs a lot of information into each episode. Every episode focuses on a new location, a new adventure, and keeps your eyes wide open through beautiful visuals, animation, and stunning footage (they even use a drone). Mr. Schriemer takes the viewer on a tour of spectacular ecosystems and exciting tourist destinations and gears the information toward planning your own family travel. The show is straightforward and educational without being boring—and with just a 22-minute runtime, it is perfect for classroom use, too!

The way the show presents nature as a destination and not merely something you drive through is inspiring and exciting. It’s a simple way to get children and families to explore nature and enjoy God’s fascinating creation. Did you know that one cattail can produce over 3,000 more? I didn’t until I watched this program—proof that even adults can learn from and enjoy this series!

Watch with the nature lovers (or skeptics) in your life and plot your own adventure—there are plenty of ideas and inspiration to be found in All Over the Map. The end credits even include useful links to the sights featured in the show. Exploring as a family has never been easier, even if it’s only from your sofa. Dove is pleased to award All Over the Map the Dove Seal of Approval for All Ages.
