Buon giorno! This is not your typical ABC book. I actually learned some information while reading this book as it is not geared for our younger ABC readers. Did you know the tongue of the blue whale can be the size of an elephant? Did you know the canopy in the rainforest can be so densely packed that it can take 10 minutes for raindrops to reach the jungle floor? Is it proper to belch after a meal in Taiwan? Sure, that’s considered a compliment to the chef. I love learning this stuff, I don’t ...more

This story covers different aspects of places all over the world and some of the things you might experience as you travel. B is for the different types of bread you might eat. Under the letter I is a discussion of some of the islands around the world. Q is for some of the quests you might embark on. Each two page spread has paragraph in rhyme about the world and a side bar with a more lengthy explanation about places around the world.

The illustrations are created by many different artists which

The picture book is very useful because it is developmentally beneficial to all ages. It is great for younger kids in that it emphasizes the alphabet and words that correspond with each letter. For younger students, it could be read one or two pages per day; taken in small chunks. It is also good for older elementary kids because it contains a great deal of content about travel, habitats, cultures, climates, and landmarks. The illustrations are wonderful and display great detail.

A great idea but I didn't think it was done as well as it could have been. I assumed it was a book that would use the alphabet to highlight other places in the world. Which it does in some parts. However, in many letters they use animals, D is desert, K is for knapsack, U is for under, too many themes. It's like the author couldn't decide about what he wanted to highlight. It is also a bit too wordy. Your tired 8 letters into the alphabet.

Different from other alphabet books but fun and informative. Good at teaching kids about other places and larger words. I kind of wish it had 1 illustrator instead of each page being someone different. Made it a little disjointed.

I like the idea of this book, going through the alphabet and around the world, but some of the letter choices are odd, and some of the pictures are not as awesome as others. But I think I will still use it for SRP promotion as an idea, around the world alphabet.
