We received this book to give an honest review.

K and I love visiting the countries that this author writes about. We always seem to learn something new each time we read about a different country. In this story we are reading about Italy and of course we learn what they eat, what you would call your parents to even learning the word for school which K loves. I learned a new fact that there is a country within Italy how awesome is that. I never learned that in school and that would have been cool information. I think all school libraries should have this series of books I think children would really love to learn cool facts and learn to say new words.
