Play It! Belize by Mesa Somer is "a game, a guidebook AND a souvenir."

As a guidebook, it covers the highlights of Belize in 60 pages with full-color photos -- Maya sites, national parks, animals of Belize, birds of
Belize, trees and flowers, reef fish, insects and reptiles and
Belizean food.

The game part comes in this way: You score points -- say, 20 points
for seeing a quash in the wild or 10 points for a strangler fig, 50
points for visiting Xunantunich, 70 points for visiting Cockscomb, and
so on. At the end, you total up points and rate yourself as Explorer
(400-690 points) or Adventurer (700-990 points) or whatever. Whoever in your group has the most points wins.

You can check off the different places you visit in Belize, so it also
serves as a souvenir of your trip.

It should be fun for families with kids.

I recommend it as something new and different for visitors to Belize.

I bought this book for my 11 year old daughter for an 18 day trip to Belize that we just got back from. It was a wonderful trip, and this book made it so much more special. She had a blast trying to find all the different animals/birds/fish, trees & flowers in all the places that we went, as well as all the different Belize food we tried. She was very successful too! I had fun helping her as well.
I loved how much she added to the book to find. It was like an 18 day scavenger hunt. It was really fun! After adding up all my points I became an honary Belizean on my first visit! Jane & Haile Traxler

I bought this book on recommendation of a friend. I thought it was going to be too 'silly' and that I wouldn't really enjoy it, but as we traveled through Belize it turned out to be a perfect side to all of our adventures! The fact that it is not too in-depth, that it just had a slight overview of all of the facts and details, was what made it perfect. I didn't hesitate to jot down little notes as I worked through the book. When I arrived home I had a lot of information from my trip that I might have otherwise forgotten. I highly recommend this book!
