I need help coming up with children's books set in locations all over the world?
I am creating a Reading Enrichment Program for my students. The theme is "Let's Take a Trip." I want my kids to feel like they are in that country/town when they read the book. I am aiming for books ranging from 3rd-5th grade reading levels. I am not looking for historical books that talk about the history of the country or books that list off facts about the country. I am looking for books such as Harry Potter, which takes place in Europe. Or Heidi, Secret Garden, A Little Princess. So any book titles or websites you can think of would be a great help.
Asia/Russia, Europe, Australia, Africa, The Artic, North America, South America.... anywhere

It's main purpose is to convince people "that Jesus is the Christ, the Eternal God, manifesting himself unto all nations." (Title page, Book of Mormon) and "contains, as does the Bible, the fulness of the everlasting gospel. " (Introduction, Book of Mormon). It contains records of God's dealings with the people in the ancient Americas. It is a compilation of about 1000 years of their history and prophets teachings. Some principals taught in it are Salvation: 2 Nephi 26:24, Mosiah 3:18, Alma 34:37 Resurrection: 2 Nephi 9:11-12, Jacob 4:11, Alma 11:42, Alma 40, Baptism: 2 Nephi 31:4-12, Mosiah 18, Mormon 8 Faith: Alma 32, Ether 12 Repentance: Mosiah 3:12, Mosiah 27 There are a lot more, but these are some.
