Let's Explore the British Isles (Paperback)
Inspired by the classic geography series written by Charlotte Mason herself, Let's Explore The British Isles brings a living geography book to the 21st century, with modern facts and details, while retaining the same charming style.
Vital information comes alive, not as dry facts on a page, but as a story of England, Scotland, Wales, and both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Each short chapter, filled with photos, maps and illustrations, covers the physical and human geography of the British Isles. Discover the landforms, water forms and coastlines of these islands, as well as a concise but clear account of these countries' regions with their cities, countryside, agriculture and industry. Our journey is filled with topical details about historical events, famous people, inventions and anecdotes that are fascinating for readers both home and abroad.
Aimed at 8 to 11 year-olds, this book is suitable for reading to oneself, reading aloud or for narrating. It is ideal for use in an educational curriculum, school or homeschool, or simply for personal interest.
