Here is a great little series to introduce kids to different cultures and countries around the world. The story is always about two little chihuahuas and one showing the other around a particular city in the world. They explore the great attractions of the city, usually have some of the food, and even discuss some of the artists. At the end of the book, there is a page of popular phrases used in that city. I thought the series as a whole was very well done. This book is set in Paris and discusse ...more

The world is a big place and full of cultural diversity and interesting sights to see. Children need to learn about this wondrous world - the civilizations, the history, the peoples, the climates, the geography, and the food. Well, author, Lisa Manzione and illustrator, Kristine Lucco will bring the world to your door step courtesy of Bella and Harry.

In Paris they visit art museums, see the Eiffel Tower, eat French food, and visit the Arc de Triompe. Lots of famous places and things to see in th

This first book in the series about Bella and Harry introduces the Chihuahua siblings. The two love to travel the world with their family. The family is actually never pictured or introduced in any of the books I've read this far, putting the focus on Bella and Harry and their own adventures in the cities. Though at a couple points Bella refers to "our boy and girl" which may refer to unintroduced kids. The pair admire the Eiffel Tower, eat crepes and jambon baguettes (ham sandwiches) at a café, ...more

I discovered this book in a bookstore in Bucharest while shopping for books for our girls. There were several books of a series featuring this pair of Chihuahuas and I perused them all. What I liked was the colorful illustrations and the exciting adventure of exploring a new culture and city.

What frustrated me was the seemingly random selection of what to present. I know that small children have a limited attention span and cannot be expected to learn all aspects of a culture in one story. And

The illustrations of Bella and Harry are playful, colorful and draw your attention. The concept is also wonderful - a travel book about Paris, teaching language, concepts, etc. But the text doesn't live up to the pictures or the idea.

It starts with: "Today we are off to Paris, France! I think I will love Paris! Paris is commonly known as the "City of Light." Paris is called this because it is the most lit city in the world."

While it might be a good gift for a child visiting Paris, there are othe

Read an article about this book in a local magazine and thought my niece would enjoy it. She is 8 and going to Europe in June. Well, my niece loved this book. She now knows some highlights about Paris as well as some French phrases and types of French food. Bella and Harry (sibling Chihuahuas) are adorable characters. It is written at a level she can understand and the illustrations are just perfect!! I look forward to getting my niece the other books in the series. I will let you know what she ...more

great pictures; hence 2 stars ...Inaccuracies galore and poor phrasing "...the Louvre is a very famous museum. There is a lot of history kept in this museum." Really? Which wing?
The City of Light is not so called because it is the most lit city in the world. Crepes in France are not rolled as they are in the States (and are so depicted). Aeroplane is not the French word for airplane. And so on and so on...Great idea, wish I had thought of it and could deduct those travel costs from my writing ex

This is a great fun and educational book. The description of the landmarks was just enough to keep my daughter engaged in the story, but not so descriptive that she was bored by the story. She loved the characters and now is asking for more of Bella. Our children need more books like this. I plan to purchase the other books in the series. Education is important in my home.

The first Bella & Harry book takes them to Paris. I love the mixture of architecture, culture, and art that are scattered throughout this book. Well done and very interesting as an introduction to Paris.

Very cute children's book about two chihuahua siblings who travel to Paris. I loved the illustrations. I also enjoyed the snippets of information about the city and the French language. This is the first of a series of books, each of which showcases a different city visited by Bella and Harry. ...more
