For a less expensive route that will give you the biomes of North America AND all of the other continents besides, the Complete Set of Control Charts for the Biome Puzzles is just $25.00.
The back side of the full color biome map is a black & white biome map, which you can photocopy and have children color. The little yellow piece standing alone to the left of the Rocky Mountains is California. Of course, these are the control charts to the wooden puzzle maps, so if you had the North America Biome Puzzle you could also do it as part of this block. (The puzzle maps each come with a control chart as well; it is made of wood.)
