And now for a new children's book, from one of Miss Grace's favorite authors!
Children are loving this award winning series! It has created a whole generation of armchair travelers that are thrilled to learn about cultures and customs from around the globe.
Join Carole P. Roman as she visits the Republic of Italy. Learn what it is like to live in Rome, see the famous architecture, celebrate a favorite holiday and discover popular names for both boys and girls. Be fascinated with it's diverse and rich history and colorful traditions. On the way, you might learn a word or two in Italian!
Once again Carole gives us another enchanting book, this the 16th (!!) book in the series!
The book collection is aimed at kids ages 3-8, but as the checkout rate at Miss Grace's school attests, even kids a bit older can make use of the books for social studies, geography and social studies reports!
As you can see the Italy books alternates between adorable drawings and pictures of the real life monuments and landscapes, while teaching about the Italian culture, and sharing its wonderful language. Your kids might be surprised about how much of the Italian culture they already know about from popular cartoons and series!
This would be a fun book to read and the have a family cooking night together too, like maybe some spaghetti alla carbonara and some gelato?
This is a super series and we HIGHLY recommend it for you and your child, especially if you home school!
