The Best Geography Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
The “living book” approach to geography is a unique way to engage kids and get them excited about learning.Since I have three boys in vastly different age categories, I have incorporated picture books and other fun hands-on materials into much of our ‘school’ work. The titles below are sure to spark enthusiasm as you learn concepts of maps, landforms, and features of the earth. Don’t underestimate the power of a good picture book to teach–no matter what age your child is!
