Product Description

World Book Traveller is a literature study that will help you guide your children towards a love of good books. Snuggled up, reading together on the couch you begin your world tour. You are the travel guide. The books are the transport.  The children are the tourists. The journey is ahead. With each book you will open their eyes to world geography, art appreciation and the natural connection of ideas that are presented in each book.

Sixteen picture books have been chosen as the your Travel Books. These books are the starting point of the literature studies. Each varies in its flavour, art and location. The books were  chosen for their educational, literary and artistic merit. There are true tales, legends, fiction and factual stories. Every story has something special to share with your child that will enrich their  experience of the world.

At the back of this ebook you will find 16 Map Marker. There is a book cover picture for each book studied.
