So many books line my shelves that are part of a series. Some are written by one author who continues a story throughout many volumes. Others are contained in a series which presents many topics within a particular subject. There are series of fiction, series of history, of science and many others.
I thought we'd start our look at series with the subject of geography. Many of these are out of print, written in a living way which will help our children build relationships with those around the world.
