The Best Italy Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Continuing with our May geography/travel theme, this week we are off to Italy with some fabulous children’s books! You could create a whole unit study with this list, so if Italy is on the agenda for your history studies, you might want to include some of these books to add another element. No matter how old they get, kids (and adults) can still learn a lot from picture books. I had so much fun putting this list together. Though I can’t be in Italy in person right now, it sure is fun to live vicariously through characters like Olivia and Madeline.
If you have some suggestions to add to the list, please leave a comment and share your ideas.
