Follow Me Around Italy
In the southern European nation of Italy, people live la dolce vita, the sweet life. Meet up with Fausto, your tour guide, as he takes readers on an incredible trip across Italy. He will show off his favorite landmarks and give readers an insider's view of modern Italian culture, from what people do for fun to how they dress. He will also explain the country's history, traditions, and much more.
Follow me around Canada! Or Japan! Or Ireland! Now that's an invitation! In each book, your very own guide shows you around his country. He (or she) will talk about their home city and what its like to live there. Loads of facts are presented in clear and colorful language that keeps the readers interest. Comparisons to life in the US really make it stick for a young reader. Foods, animals, cities, nature, folk tales, schools, modern and ancient history, a nice timeline, famous products from that country, holidays (the usual and unusual), sports, weather, what to pack, and even a glossary with pronunciation help is included! Whew! Thats quite an adventure! Scholastic, 8"x 7.25", 32 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
