Summary: Where on earth will you find a more exciting look at the world around us? Explore the world’s continents, countries, and capital cities, and marvel at the planet’s most extraordinary physical features-from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans-in a lighthearted mix of text, diagrams, maps, and amusing illustrations that will captivate children and encourage them to keep trekking. Divided into bite-size chunks, this book presents kids with a world of knowledge in the coolest ways possible and includes: a whirlwind tour of what planet Earth is made of and its position in the solar system, a look at the continents, with a listing of all the countries and their capital cities, forest fun facts and “tree-via,” a chart of the world’s largest deserts and the venomous animals that live there, an exciting journey across the ocean floor and more.

I Wish I Knew That Geography

This book is a part of a large series of books by Reader’s Digest. You can see all of the books below.

This is the perfect book for anyone who wants to either learn the basics of geography or relearn the basics. I loved geography as a kid and I still do. I enjoyed reading about mountains, volcanoes, biomes, oceans, earthquakes, atomosphere, reading maps, islands, continents and more.

The book is full of maps and drawings that make reading fun. The inside of the book has a spot to write names if you are gifting this book to someone. If a child/teen age 8+ you know loves geography, this would be a great gift.

However I certainly think adults can read it too. I did.
