Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4–A zesty combination of story and factual information, this book capitalizes on today's popular interest in scrapbooking. An adventure-seeking dog visited various sites in Paris, Rome, Cairo, Nairobi, Moscow, Delhi, Tokyo, Canberra, Mexico City, and Washington, DC. Tripper rode a camel, surfed Bondi Beach, rode the Trans-Siberian Railway, and floated through the Xochimilco gardens. He even managed to bypass security and sneak onto the White House grounds, where he received an unexpected presidential pat on the head. A basic outline map shows each capital's general location. Four pages are devoted to each city and include illustrations of various sizes and strategically placed captions. The appealing, mixed-media artwork incorporates oil paint, oil pastel, prismacolor pencil, and Photoshop; the illustrations are too small and detailed to be seen by a group, making this more of a title for one-on-one sharing or individual browsing. Eye-catching, stylized headings separate the material pertinent to each destination. A useful pronunciation guide for selected foreign words is appended. Tripper's scrapbook is a gold mine of material for spin-off curricular connections. The format might serve as a model for student writing while the text could be the basis for sorting fact from fiction.–Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

Format: Hardcover
My daughter and I LOVED reading this book. It covers so much information and presents it in such a kid (and doggy)friendly way! The pictures are fantastic! We are huge fans of the Chapman's other books too. One other special favorite is "Doggie Dreams". These books will be in our family a long time because as my daughter says, "I want my kids to see this book too!" and my daughter is only 8!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on October 31, 2005
Format: Hardcover
As an ESL instructor of a large public school system as well as an international school, I believe the methodology used was consistently superior and merits use in the classroom as part of the regular curriculum. Given that we live in an international/world community, all stakeholders should learn about other regions and countries of the world. Tripper's Travel's is a great guide for a curriculum effort in international studies.
