Teaching Geography and Cultures with Living Books

Last year we decided to make the move to living books for history. It was a good move. A life-giving, sanity-saving, joy-infusing move, not only for my kids and their homeschooling but for myself as their teacher.

Using engaging stories and living books for history makes it so much more fun and memorable, drawing us in beyond dry facts and dates. That’s what we want isn’t it?

Naturally, I wanted to replicate this success in other areas of our learning! Geography was a perfect next step. Learning about the world and its cultures is something that instantly intrigues children, especially when it’s told with beautiful and engaging stories!

This post is sponsored by Beautiful Feet Books. However, curriculum from Beautiful Feet Books is treasured in my home and this review, as always, is an honest one. I know you’ll love it as much as we do!

Teaching Geography and Cultures with Living Books using the Around the World with Picture Books from Beautiful Feet Books! 

Teaching Geography and Cultures with Living Books

Confession time: It took me a few years to realize that geography isn’t just about drawing maps, or identifying capitols and whatnot. I thought the subject was rather dry and boring! But that’s not the case at all.

Geography is actually about all of that, but more importantly, it’s about the people — their cultures and their journeys in the context of history. It is far more interesting and meaningful than I had expected, and the best part is that it can be done quite well with living books!

Here are some tips for how to teach geography using living books

Maps and Landmarks

First, get some good maps in place. You can use a globe, a wall map, some great map books, placemats with maps on them, printables, and so on. We have used all these and more but our dining room wall map is used most often. Having a handy go-to map helps so that when geography and culture topics arise you are able to look at a map and talk about them!

Learning basic landmarks, whether natural or manmade, is also a helpful approach. We have been particularly enjoying this map book that shows interesting features of each location drawn on the map itself. It has caused fantastic conversation and could be used as a lesson plan to explore each country.

Good Literature

If you’re looking to start teaching geography, great picture books and literature are a perfect jumping off point. Of course, you will find that any source of information that talks about people and places (world news, textbooks, field trips, etc.) can lead you to great learning experiences, but living books are by far our favorite!

With living books like picture books, biographies, and other great literature, you can go along for a journey, walking in someone’s shoes, or learn about the culture and features of a country in a more intimate way. It is a method that is far more memorable and engaging, which is exactly what your kids will remember most!

Here are some of the things you can explore as you read your fantastic literature and interact with your maps:

History – As you learn about a people group, it just makes sense to dip into their history a bit to learn about their past. An easy way to do this is to use historical fiction or biographies, since history lessons will often come along for the ride! 

Animals and Environments – When you read a book set in Alaska, pause and take some time to learn about the animals there, the climate, the aurora borealis, and so on. Read picture books from the point of view of an animal and your kids will be captivated! 

Culture – As you read your literature selection, take note of the people and their art, music, and food. For me this is where I have the most fun in teaching. We can learn about language, famous works of art, listen to music selections, and try out fun food! Learn about their folktales as well!

Narrate and Record

In our homeschool we’ve developed the the very Charlotte Mason habit of narrating as we go with our living books curriculum. It’s an easy one to do with persistence! Have your children tell back to you what they heard or read during a lesson, gauging what they’ve retained from the reading.

Coloring pages and drawings of what they learned are also really helpful for us. If they’re at the stage for it, they can do some simple notebooking to capture what most stood out to them, draw a flag or animal, or anything else that records what they learned in a memorable way!

Of course, you can do a lot of these activities on your own to learn about geography. However, one of my favorite curriculum finds this year has made it SUCH a fantastic experience for us!

Around the World with Picture Books

Around the World with Picture Books is a new study guide that walks children K – 3rd through gorgeous picture books as they learn about geography and culture! 

Now, I really like Beautiful Feet Books curriculum already and we enjoy their American history series, but I absolutely LOVE the Around the World with Picture Books set! The books are really fantastic, including that maps book I mentioned to you before and all the other selections. Some we had already read before, like The Story About Ping, and some were new treasures, like Anno’s China.

I have never gushed about a curriculum so much. My husband gave me a few funny looks as I kept telling him how amazing it was. Lol! Part II which will cover Europe and South America will be available summer of 2018, and it’s definitely on my to-buy list!

Around the World with Picture Books Part I includes 70 lessons for between a semester to a year’s worth of work, depending  on your pace. Although it’s K-3rd I use mine for pre-k -4th and it works great. You can simplify or extend as needed. 

The lessons in Part I cover Asia (China, Japan, Thailand, and India), Africa (Morocco, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ghana), Australia, and Antarctica. 

Here are some reasons why I’m such a fan: 

  • Gorgeous and engaging picture books (did I mention that? I think I did) 
  • Helpful and interesting study guide with activity ideas, including easy ones we can do without much prep work, if any. 
  • A lovely experience “visiting” each country and learning about food, music, art, history, and more. 
  • The photos and layout of the study guide itself is really beautiful. For some reason this was a huge plus for me. I think I enjoy reading through it, looking at the photos, and doing the small amount of prep work just as much as my kids enjoy the lessons! 
  • Wonderful suggestions and links for YouTube videos, more books to explore, etc. 
  • A journal for simple notebooking and recording. There are sheets you can print off for coloring or for pasting into the journal. 
  • Optional digital download of the study guide, which can be really handy for those links and printing off coloring or notebooking pages.

I answered a LOT of questions in the comments of this FB live video, so if you can, hop over there and browse through those! Someone may have asked the question you are wondering right now. 

Some Considerations to Note

First, learning about geography and cultures is the perfect occasion to talk to your children about sharing the Good News about Jesus Christ, reaching other people groups with the gospel, and praying for those countries. Since the study guide doesn’t really provide that you’ll want to add it on your own!

Second, the whole set isn’t cheap, I’ll grant, but we’ve decided from experience that the Beautiful Feet Books selections are always so wonderful that they’re worth the investment for a great library of living books. 

Here are some other ways to reduce the prices:

  • Just buy the study guide and a few book selections
  • Buy the set and get the automatic $20 off and free shipping
  • Use their Lowest Price Guarantee offer on their packs. If you can put together their pack from a different seller and come up with a lower price, they’ll match it and give you $10 credit off your order! Their pack prices really can’t be beat.
  • If you already own 1-5 titles in the pack you can call them and they’ll remove those books from your order, adjusting the price down.

  11. Love this pack!!

  12. Your descriptions of the books are exciting and definitely encourages me to look into this curriculum more. How fun!

  13. This sounds lovely! I’m barely at the beginning of homeschooling, as I’m just getting ready to start a very low key pre-k with my almost 3 year old, but I’ve already caught myself thinking ahead and looking into curriculum for the future. I find myself leaning towards Charlotte Mason style because I love the living books focus, but since we live in such a globally connected world these days, and attend a church with a strong focus on missions that also has many International adoptive families, I already know I want more attention on the non-Western world than a lot of what I’ve found offers. This sounds perfect!

  14. This sounds great for my army brat world travelers!

  15. Thanks for hosting this giveaway! LOVE Beautiful Feet Books!!!

  16. I agree with what you said about incorporating literature into geography studies. My kids love reading!

  17. Our homeschool is infused with living books! We use a variety of living books to make learning come alive for all ages (currently 6-12)..

  18. What a wonderful book list! I would love to try out this curriculum with my daughter!

  19. I’m impressed that they’ll price adjust for any books that you already own! That has always been my hesitation with other curriculums…Do I try to gather the books I don’t have from various sources so that I don’t have doubles, or do I just buy the whole set, which ends up being the same price with less work. I also like the digital resource too.

  20. Beautiful feet books has such a beautiful selection of books some that are already on my list for next year, and some I’m sure we would enjoy. I would love to win this giveaway!

  21. All the books look incredibly cool!

  22. I love the idea of reading real books to learn about geography.

  23. This program is on my list to buy for next school year. It would be awesome to win the gift card and guide! I haven’t purchased yet because it’s such a large investment. But it looks like so much fun!

  26. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I love the idea of using a set of preselected books instead of having to find each book myself!

  27. I’ve read through several Beautiful Feet books but without their guide. I’m crossing my fingers and toes hoping to get a package!

  28. Love, Love, Love Beautiful Feet! Most intriguing to me is the Around the World with Picture Books as I’m not familiar with this resource yet. Great ideas here as well! Thank you!

  29. This looks like a fantastic new guide. I love using picture books to teach and when you add the notebooking idea to it? Fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

  30. My kids will love the book Maps!

  31. Winning this package would truly be a blessing, saving both time & money putting such a curriculum together on my own! Thanks for the opportunity, Tauna!

  32. I love the idea of teaching geography and history through literature. I saw a sample of the study guide recently, and I really liked the simplicity of it.

  33. Thanks for sharing, Tauna! We are a Charlotte Mason- style homeschooling family that lives overseas in Ukraine. We are also an international, bilingual family. This curriculum guide looks great! I’ve been trying to piece together my own list/activities for geography/history, but it’s hard with three young kids, ministry, homeschooling, and everyday life here in our village takes a lot more time! This looks like a great fit.

  34. I am really excited about this. We currently live in Korea but have been to Japan and want to go to China and Thailand so a curriculum that talks about these countries is great. My daughter is 4 so I am thinking this would be great for kindergarten next year 🙂

  35. We love BF books and thank you for an honest review.

  36. I think books are the best way to teach children, especially about different places and cultures.

  37. We do Five in a Row but I like the fact that a lot of the notebooking goes and activities are already set up for you here.

  38. I love using picture books, Even with my bigger kid. They make some things more simple to share and explain. love the idea of having the notes there for the books.

  39. I like that it gives you a jumping off point to spark their interest.

  40. My daughter LOVES storybooks, so this would be a wonderful way to give her a strong history/geography experience that she would love!

  41. I love hearing about your experience!

  42. Thanks K you for the wonderful review. I would love to be able to have all the curriculum and books from beautiful feet!

  43. Thanks for the review! I had already been looking at this set for my 6 year old next year and you’ve convinced me!

  44. I love the BF books! Would be such a treat to get some for free. 🙂

  45. This sounds so interesting! I love using books to teach things..

  46. This is just what I am planning to do with my kids this coming school year. I thought I would have to figure it out all on my own. This would be a tremendous help!

  47. Thank you for sharing this. Over the past three years that I have homeschooled I have really admired all of Beautiful Feet Books. Honestly, the only reason why I haven’t ordered it before is it is a bit pricey. I have four girls and homeschool each of them, which it all adds up fast. My girls love to learn about different places around the world. Looking at pictures that are beautiful really have a big impact on them. I am super excited about this geography curriculum and hope it fits in our budget this year.

  48. Yes please! I can’t keep myself from buying children’s books even though we have stacks and shelves 🙂

  49. I just love that you can travel the world without leaving your home! These books are beautiful!

  50. I just LOVE these fantastic living books. We haven’t done enough of these w/ our boys so I’m intrigued!

  51. This looks absolutely amazing! I am a fourth generation mixed Asian American myself with barely a shred of ethnic origin culture left in me. I keep thinking I should teach them about our family background, but it is awkward since I’m so removed from it, I would not be able to teach them much from personal experience or knowledge. Books and stories come to life in their imagination, so this is a great starting point!

  52. I am a visual person.Have you done a video on Besutiful feet?

    1. I’ll be doing a FB live review today and will post the replay here in the blog post so non-fb folks can view it. 🙂

  53. I really love the idea of teaching culture with geography. I also love the living books idea, as well, as that seems like something my family would love!

  54. This looks like a great way to draw in all my younger kids to study history together!

  55. This curriculum sounds amazing! We are going to be learning about countries and cultures around the world with a different curriculum next year but I totally see supplementing with this curriculum too!

  56. I have been looking at BFB for awhile, this has convinced me we are in the right spot 😉 Thank you!

  57. This sounds like something i would love to do with my younger set. I used Five In A Row with my olders and have heard a lot about Beautiful Feet but it has always been too pricey for me. I also love to use this type of curriculum for history and geography but not so much for english, so this sounds perfect. Definately something i am going to check out

  58. Love this approach of learning through literature!

  59. This set is great. My girls love getting lost in the stories and soaking up the world it takes them to!

  60. I love literature study guides! This looks great!

  61. I love living history element of Beautiful Feet books.

  62. I love BFB products and have the Around the World with picture Books one on my wishlist for my youngest!

  65. I love Beautiful feet but never thought i would get a chance to get any. Thank you for this chance.

  66. I have been drooling over this curriculum for months! Would love to add it to our plan for next school year. Thanks for the review and opportunity.

  67. My kids love books and learn so much from reading. I’ve been wanting to try a Bfb study guide for a while. I love how they organize everything and make it flow naturally. Thanks for the chance to win!

  68. I agree, living books are the way to go. Who would rather memorize dates and names rather than look at beautiful photographs and read engaging stories? No one!

  69. I have used Beautiful Feet off and on for years and LOVE their curriculum (book selections and study guides). The giveaway is one set I don’t have but would love to own as I still have several children to “bring up through the ranks.”

  70. I would love this to use for my daughters first grade year! She could gain so much from reading the books!

  71. I love the simplicity of the program and the fact that you can add as little or as much work to it as you like. I have been shopping around for an Around the World unit for our first official year of school and this one seems to fit the bill. The study guide seems super helpful. Also a big thank you for the examples that you provided on how to make us of this program They are very helpful and I’ll be pinning this page to come back to!

  72. I was just looking at this the other day!

  73. I love the look of these books! I’ve been thinking about using it this fall for my four and five year old!

  74. This looks very easy to teach, especially if one has a large family!

  75. I like how this geography curriculum integrates other areas like art, literature, and cultural studies.

  76. I love the range of cultures it exposes the kids to, in a gentle way.

  77. I love Beautiful Feet books! Hoping to use Around the World with Picture Books next year with my soon-to-be 7 year old son!

  78. I love all the read alouds! I’ve recently been introduced to BFB and am impressed.

  83. This looks amazing! The idea of learning geography through literature is really intriguing. I will definitely be looking into this program more!

  84. It looks like something my oldest would really enjoy.

  85. I love learning geography as well as information about other countries and cultures. These living books look like fun ways to engage children in learning!

  86. I’ve been looking at beautiful feet for a while. This would be great!

  87. I loved learning about these books and curriculum. One of the reasons I have wanted to homeschool is the opportunity to move away from school structure with worksheets and dive into application of what we are learning. These books open the possibility for this to happen each day.

  88. This looks so wonderful! We have their America History curriculum and just love it. That map book looks especially interesting. I’m sure the combination of that and the picture books is a real winner!

  89. A wonderful way to learn geography and cultures of others.

  93. We have been using the primary character study and have enjoyed it. I am very interested in seeing how their other curriculum works and this would be perfect for my 2 younger girls 🙂

  94. I love all of the amazing books that are part of this curriculum!

  95. This really looks interesting! I have a daughter on the spectrum, and it is hard ro find things on her level that would interest her. I might have just found it!!!

  97. We are just finishing up this one and we loved it!

  98. I love that it uses living books

  99. I love that it´s focused on the continents I know least about!

  100. I’ve never tried a living books approach to home education. I’ve always used textbooks. My younger children have been complaining lately that their textbooks are boring. I’m thinking of trying to add in a few living books and see if they find them boring or interesting. The books in this collection look interesting.

  101. Great review! We really love BFB here! We have the character studies, (old) geography, and Early American Primary. It would be so exciting to try the Around the World study!!

  102. I have been wanting to give my children a more global perspective and I love that this curriculum can help me do that!!

  103. Thank you for your review. It’s always helpful to see and/or read someone else’s thoughts when you can’t get your hands on the product yourself.

  104. I love how they integrate Geography and Literature while adding in hands-on components and extensions.

  105. This looks amazing!!! I LOVE children’s books and to have these treasures to teach history/geography/cultures and character would be such a gift!

  108. Some of the books on China look great. We are planning a unit study on China quite soon. The Maps book looks like a great resource too. I love doing geography with the kids.

  109. I love the living book selections a the additional resources.

  110. I love Beautiful feet. I used the Character study with my child.

  111. I have recently been looking at getting the Early American set, followed by the Around the World set! But I would happily switch that around! We would love to be able to buy all the books, but it is a financial stretch for us. Both my husband and I lived overseas before we got married and we love talking about our big beautiful world! Now we have 4 kiddos who we travel with through books. : ) I would love, love, to win a gift card for the store!!

  112. I love how they incorporate geography and art and would love to work more on these subjects. I would love to see how they work it in.

  113. I first tried Beautiful Feet this year with the Modern American and WorldHistory Study Guide. My middle school kids and I love it! My 7 year old will be transitioning to homeschool from public school next year, and this geography pack would be just lovely to do with hiim!

My oldest daughter inherited this love and we both love learning about places and cultures through great stories!
