Featured Reviews

Colorful illustrations show smiling multicultural children in a one double page spread for each country. For each of 18 countries visited on this around the world cruise we are taught four words: Hello, Please, Thank you, Goodbye. A “travel journal” included in the backmatter gives some simple information about each of the countries. Young children will enjoy pretending to visit and speak to people around the world but older school age children will want to learn more than is offered in brief introduction to the world. Consider pairing this book with a children’s atlas such as the National Geographic Kids May First Atlas of the World or possibly the Barefoot World Atlas App.
