This boxful of fascinating facts for kids presents five Little Books of Facts that focus on social and physical geography. Each of these board books concentrates on one of the Earth's populated continents, and each is shaped to resemble the continent's outline on a map

Denali is the continent's highest mountain, at 20,322 feet. . . that North America's main spoken languages are English, Spanish, and French. . . and that with 19 million people, Mexico City is the continent's largest city. Kids explore interesting details, presented in words and pictures for each continent. Books are packed in a strong, handsomely designed cardboard box that can be closed with a pair of sturdy snaps. The inside cover presents more illustrated facts about people and places, and the box's bottom panel features a map of the world. Here's a great introduction to geography for kids.
