It's time for story time around the world! Let's board our private jet and head to jolly old England. Pip pip and cheerio!
- This is England by Miroslav Sasek
We have featured this travel series for kids a lot on the blog because the retro graphics with the interesting tidbits about exciting locals will always thrill us! This one takes readers through some of England's industrious cities as well as some of the most charming countryside anywhere in the world.
- This is London by Miroslav Sasek
The same great vintage graphics that you would want to put in a frame on your wall but focusing on the busy, bustling city of London. It has been said that if you tire of London, you tire of life, so this book is definitely a keeper.
- Good Queen Bess by Diane Stanley and Peter Vennema with pictures by Diane Stanley
One of England's most fascinating and influential monarchs with beautiful illustrations that bring her world to life for elementary school aged readers.
- This is London: A Book of Opposites by Ashley Evanson
We are big fans of Evanson's Hello World board book series! This one teaches the concept of opposites while providing awesome illustrations of London.
- Mary Poppins and Mary Poppins Comes Back by P.L. Travers
While the movie and the book versions of Mary are quite different, movie fans will still recognize the magical nanny enough to really enjoy this classic novel and its sequel. Unlike the movie where Mary only stays for a little while and then must go, in the books, Mary comes back to the Banks household many times. Also different from the movie - there are five children instead of two, Bert is a matchman instead of a chimney sweep, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (spell check is hating me right now) is no where to be found.
