A geopolitical view of the world
Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Explain Everything About the World - Tim Marshall,Scott Brick

All throughout this book I kept asking what he now had to say about this and that because it is three years since he wrote the book and Korea has a nuclear weapons capabilities now and the US has a new president and a number of other significant changes. Fascinating book. It will give you a whole new understanding of the world we live in.

So Much More than Was Offered
Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Facts About Exciting England: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids - Jess Roche

It gave some small things, talking about tea and how the idea of having tea started and why it is not as common these days. It talked about a few sites you could see in London, but it glossed over things and left much that was not covered. It also needs to be edited.

A Bit Too Preachy
Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Fac... Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Facts About Largest Lakes: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids (Volume 1) - Jess Roche

Again, this is a good conversation starter and starting place to learn more, but it needs editing. Photos were nice, well taken. The ends of the books are a bit preachy about using too much and needing to share with others....don't think I am going to mail water anywhere. I do know that my children are water babies and love water areas, but when we went to the lake over a winter, we discovered how much trash was in the water and how they might have ended up injured from all the broken glass, the needles, and rusted beer cans. Every year, I say I will go and help with the cleanup, but never make it due to other obligations. One of these days, we may make it up there to help clean up.

Needs Editing
Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Fac... Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Facts About Avenging Avalanches: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids (Volume 1) - Jess Roche

"...don't try to outrun it but get to the side of to." pg 17
This little error stopped me dead in my tracks. I guess I am getting tired of reading the books for school use and little things are just stopping me. 

 

I would say that this book is also good for starting conversations and had some good beginner information on Avalanches. The author just needs to go back and quick edit.

Tsunamis
Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Fac... Jaw-Dropping Geography: Fun Learning Facts About Towering Tsunamis: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids (Volume 1) - Jess Roche

 Good information, another that is good for general information and a starting point for more information. Liked the use of the old photographs. My only point would be to edit the book. Some of the errors would be confusing for early readers and/or those who have reading issues.
