ALL ACROSS EUROPE helps children learn about the countries, people, animals, and landscapes of modern Europe. As with the other books in the geography book series, which includes ALL ACROSS CHINA and ALL ACROSS CANADA, this book uses artwork and poems to make geography fun, with cartoon characters named after the capital of each country as a learning device. It also helps to explain and simplify a continent with many new countries, often confusing borders, and a rich, varied culture. Enjoy your visit!

ALL ACROSS EUROPE is a mnemonic-filled learning/teaching tool geared first and foremost toward helping children to learn capitals and locations of European countries in a fun and entertaining way. Additional facts, including agricultural and industrial products, are also provided to enrich the child’s learning experience.
