Can you do this? Winnipeg whiz kid shows off geography knowledge

WATCH: Madden Landicho has been learning the countries of the world since he was three years old. We put him to the test on Global News Morning.


His knowledge of geography is out of this world. And he’s just six years old.

Winnipeg’s Madden Landicho can name all the countries in the world by just looking at their location on a globe or map, or even their shape on a piece of paper.

“He kind of just stumbled across a couple of YouTube videos about the United States, so we encouraged him to learn a little bit about Canada,” Kristee said.

“He kind of exploded and went onto South America, Africa and Asia.”

And now, he knows it all. Not only can he identify the countries by shape or outline, but he can name their flags.
