One of the things many children like to do is to imagine what it would be like to visit places and countries that are far away. If you went to an African village, what would the houses be like? What kinds of things can you buy at a Middle Eastern Market?

As they look through this novelty title, children can visit eight very different places around the world. They can go to an American football game, they can visit a beach, they can explore an African village, they can go to a farm, and more. In each place, a short section of text is paired with a double page spread annotated illustration, and lift-the-flaps are incorporated into the art.

With amusing illustrations, fifty “lift-the-flap surprises,” and plenty of interesting information on every page, this is a perfect book to share with a young armchair traveler.
