Maps of the United Kingdom

Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions

This comprehensive hardback guide to the UK is full of illustrated maps, facts and historical titbits. Your child will probably turn straightaway to the county you live in, to discover lots of local information. Where are the highlights to go visit? Which famous people, from now and the past, are from your area?

Although this is a natural place to start, the joy of the book is that very soon you will be flitting through and discovering all sorts of things about places you have never been to. It's a great way to get children excited about exploring – or perhaps whet their interest about any planned holidays or day trips.

There is so much on the page to digest (delightfully illustrated by Livi Gosling) that this book is best suited to a regular rummage than an all-in-one-go read-through. Something new will catch your eye every time you open it.

Although Maps of the United Kingdom inspires a pride in the UK's history and quirks, it does so in an inclusive way (mentioning areas important to the LGBT+ community, for example) that is mindful of modern-day issues.

A true celebration of what makes all parts of Britain unique, from the Highlands to the South Downs.
