All about the EU

Let’s explore Europe! - website and booklet

Let’s explore Europe!

Website and booklet

Europe: a beautiful continent with a fascinating history. It has produced many of the world’s famous scientists, inventors, artists and composers, as well as popular entertainers and successful sports people. For centuries Europe was plagued by wars and divisions. But in the last 60 years or so, the countries of this old continent have at last been coming together in peace, friendship and unity, to work for a better Europe and a better world.

This book for children (roughly 9 to 12 years old) tells the story simply and clearly. Children can explore a wide range of topics on the environment, history, languages, traditions and geography. For example, they can find out where in Europe you can hear the chirping of cicadas, where the writer of the Harry Potter books J. K. Rowling comes from, who the Ancient Greeks were and when the first computer appeared. It also explains what the European Union is and how it works. Attractive photos and illustrations make the website and print products very appealing for children, while games and quizzes allow them to test their knowledge and compete with others.
