So it was refreshing to flip though Lonely Planet's Adventures Around the Globe. It's not a comprehensive, every-detail-you-never-wanted-to-know-about-a-country book. It's more of a dip-your-toe-in-and-get-a-taste-for-how-different-places-live kind of book. There's no mention of country capitals or population stats or any of that stuff kids usually skip over anyway.
What there *is* is interesting facts about different places and the people and animals who live there. Did you know that giraffes only sleep 30 minutes a night - and while standing up?
My 6 year old was most interested in the sticker scenes. The stickers were difficult to peel off, but that's a minor complaint about an otherwise awesome book!
As a parent I was very impressed with this book, it is filled with a lot of not only cool facts but awesome pictures and activities for the kids to do. So not only are you learning but you are having fun while doing it.
K was really excited to read this book and he got very happy when he realized that he could decorate with stickers on some of the pages. You use the stickers to decorate certain places like maybe Venice, or The Great Barrier Reef. When asked what his favorite part was his reply was "everything it is so cool."
The recommended age says 3-5 but I would say it would be better for children between 5 on up instead.
This is a great book to have and even if you read it once and do all the activities within the book you can always pick it up to read it over. The pictures are awesome and I think this will get kids to want to find out more cool facts and information about the different places within this book.
Plus, the facts listed on the pages for each region are unique and utterly fascinating. My toddler loves the idea of glowing worms living in caves in New Zealand. This portable paperback is a great item to have on a trip for the educational and entertainment value.
Recommended for young children that are interested in learning about the world or those that aren't because after seeing this book, they will be.
Note: I recieved a PDF copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
My only concern about this book is that the brief nature of its approach and activities leads to a focus on overgeneralizations - spotting the difference using Japanese geishas or turning India's holiest river into a coloring book page.
Overall, though, I think younger kids would find this book appealing and engaging, at least until they have rearranging the stickers a few too many times. This could be a great book to pull out during a long car or plane trip.
