Peanut LOVES books! We have been reading to him since he was jus a few months old, and I’m so proud to say he has developed a great love for books! My favorite thing is when he brings me a book, and “commandeers” my lap, wiggling his way in and handing me the book! With a new born now, we have lots of time to read while I’m nursing! Recently, we were given the opportunity to add to our collection of stories. The Adventures of Bella & Harry is a delightful series about a brother and sister Chihuahua who travel the world and learn about great new places.
There is a whole series of stories, and the latest adventures take place in Edinburgh and Rome! I love these stories! Written by author Lisa Manzione, who was inspired by her childhood traveling the world with her mother who worked for an airline, the award winning series, which won the Mom’s Choice Award, teaches children all about far away places and does so in a kid-friendly, humorous way. Each story is filled with interesting facts about each place, which gives children a chance to visit these places through their imagination over and over. The beautiful illustrations, by Kristine Lucco, depict real places at each location and are stunning.
Join Bella and Harry as they travel to Edinburgh with their family and see Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Botanic Garden and enjoy a trip to Loch Ness to search for Nessie! Along the way local cuisine (such as Dundee cake) and basic Scottish phrases are introduced.
Join Bella & Harry as they travel to Rome with their family and see the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain and other sites. Along the way local cusine (spaghetti and meatballs) and basic Italian words are introduced.
My hubby recently traveled to Rome for business and it was really cool to see the things he saw while there depicted in the story! When Peanut is a little older, we will have lots of fun telling and showing him all the cool things Dad saw on his trip! Peanut loves the pictures and loves puppies, so he loves these stories. Geared toward beginning readers, these books are sure to stimulate imaginations and teach children about the great places that exist far away.
