Our Little Cousin Series

Geography readers about children around the world

These very simple readers tell about life in different countries through a child, or children, that live there!

Some of the information may be out of date, but they would make great additions to a country study or a history course.


Here are the ones I could find at gutenberg and archive.org:

Other Geography series for children

If you are looking for similar readers, try out these series that have been featured here at Homeschool Commons:

The Boy Travellers

For older children – an exciting narrative of two boys who travel the world!

Children of all Lands

These books are very similar to the cousins series. They were produced later, but include photographs taken by the author herself.

Peeps at Many Lands

These are unique in that they include a map and great illustrations. Also written for older children (upper elementary).
