We are studying the geography of Europe with this incredible resource. I fill a basket with rich, living books on the country and culture we are studying ... at present that is Great Britain (England, Wales, and Scotland) as well as Ireland and North Ireland ... and my kids have beautiful books at their fingertips to enrich their studies, and I don't even think they realize that they are being immersed in learning at all times.
A few books in our basket:
Megan's Year: An Irish Traveler's Story by Whelan
This Is Ireland by Sasek (among our treasured books)
Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland by dePaola (oh how I love Tomie)
A Walk in London by Rubbino
This Is Historical Britain by Sasek
This echoes the feast of ideas and books and things that Charlotte Mason encouraged mothers to set before their children. Wise woman.
