Primary Geography Resources - Books for pupils

The books below are just a selection of stories available for primary-aged children that can be used to develop knowledge and themes in geography. Whilst it might be possible that from time to time some of the books may be out of print or reprinting, they are all familiar books which already exist in school or local libraries and so should be readily available.
