A read-aloud introduction to geography for young children that, when opened and folded back, creates a freestanding globe
Children are invited to identify and experience the Earth's amazing geography through rhyming verse and lush illustrations: from rivers, lakes, and oceans deep, to valleys, hills, and mountains steep. The secondary text offers more detailed, curriculum-focused facts and encourages readers to consider their own living environments, making the reading experience personal yet set within a global backdrop. This informative homage to Earth is sure to inspire readers to learn more about their planet – and to engage with the world around them.

Phaidon has shown us at Little that reading and playing can go hand in hand. Their books include fun ways for children to interact with the stories, from making finger puppets in The Game of Finger Worms to seeing themselves in the mirror in The Game of Mirrors.
