  1. Thanks for the Eastern European focus! One of my favourite parts of the world. If you do find any books relating to Armenia/Azerbaijan/Georgia, would love to know. I’ve borrowed the Poland one from the library and used it with a nursery group when the nursery was having an international week. It’s a great one for little kids – and older ones too.

      Hi Alison !!! I love Eastern Europe too. Let look and see if I can find any good books on Armenia. Will let you know if I do. Hope all is well over there.

  2. What a great list you have here. Are you aware of Miroslav Sasek’s travel books for children too? Those are great too – alongside Mitsumasa Anno’s travel series.

    • JumpIntoABook says:

      Hi Myra, at first I thought I wasn’t familiar with these books and then after looking up their names I realize I am familiar with their work. I love Miroslav Sasek’s series and have a couple of his books in my collection. I’m more familiar with Anno in his fun math books so I’ll enjoy getting to know his travel series. Thanks for sharing !!!
