For Christmas my ds asked for a world geography book that has mostly pictures of the cities, landmarks and things found in each country instead of the people. We already own Children Just Like Me, Children Just Like Me Celebrations, Hungry Planet and Material World.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I went to my local bookstore and asked a worker but they were no help.totheskydearParticipant
Haliburton’s Book of Marvels. Living Books Press recently republished them. 🙂Jaymar0727Participant
The Children’s atlas of God’s world by Masterbooks is pretty good. It’s not exhaustive but covers about 20 countries and has a few pictures of landmarks, historical sites, common animals, food, landscape. The cover shows some children of different cultures, but the content is more about the place, rather than the people.
Haliburton’s Book of Marvels is better for ages 12+. There are some photos, but they are black and white from 1937. It is a very interesting travel log to read though. AO uses it.
A Children’s Atlas is a good starting point for ages 6-8. We have liked the Look What Came from… series; your library may have them. Five in a Row books cover various countries, if you want any picture books to add in.
