Europe is one of the world's smallest but richest continents. It's home to about 730 million people (11% of the world's population), hundreds of languages, a variety of climates and culture.

Wikijunior Europe is a book for kids about the countries of Europe. This book will give you the basic facts about the country, its people, its geography and its history and other interesting information. This book is currently being created so feel free to make an input. If you have any other ideas for this project then go ahead and do it or talk about it in the discussion page.
