What to Read: Children’s Books About Explorers

Books About Explorers for Kids

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

We ‘literally’ explore the world every day in our homeschool–through books! We have traveled to places near and far with some of the greatest explorers through history, and the intrigue and excitement of discovery keeps us on pins and needles as we see the Pacific Northwest for the first time, or voyage to an undiscovered land.

Our list today includes some of the best picture books about explorers for your little learners. But, don’t discount the value of sharing picture books with older kids as well. These resources can be a valuable supplement to older kids’ curriculum and can inspire older kids to delve deeper into study.

Learning about explorers is a great tie-in to geography studies. We use a hands-on literature approach to geography. If you’d like to learn more about it, check out the posts below:

    When I first started teaching, I was always surprised at how the older kids loved listening to picture book read-alouds just like the little ones! These are great!

      You never get too old for a beautiful picture book!
