Book Sharing Monday :: Where to Go When ~ The Americas

Where to Go When: The Americas is a book by DK Eyewitness Travel. This is not a children's book, but we are using it to supplement our world geography studies. We are studying North America right now, and it has been interesting to see photos of places in North America.
This book is set up by calendar months, and every month has a double page highlighting where to go that month, by categories such as festivals & culture, natural wonders, active adventures, and family getaways. The photographs are amazing and the information is short but relevant. At the back of the book, you can find a full atlas.
This might not seem to be an educational type book, but we love it!

What type of books do you include in your homeschooling that are not labeled as "educational"?
