This is a FREE A3 display poster for classrooms or staffrooms which shows the locations of children’s books across the United Kingdom.
Also included is an extensive list of other books based in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Island which are all suitable for the Key Stage 2 classroom.
This is a great way to promote a geographical understanding of the U.K. as well as discover both historical and modern books told in a specific local area.
With thanks to the following…
• LH ‘Daisy’ Johnson who has created an extensive spreadsheet list of children and young adult books and where they are set within the UK. For our resource, we have used this information but removed books for ‘Young Adults’, books more suitable for Key Stage 1 or where suitable age ranges cannot be identified. I have also removed some books due to low online user ratings. The main blog can be found at www.didyoueverstoptothink.wordpress.com and there are links to the original book list on the website,
• A great interactive map with specific locations for Scottish children’s books which can be found at: www.discoverkelpies.co.uk/kelpies-near-you/
