description

In Roald Dahl's book, Matilda, there is a wonderful quote: “The books transported her into new world... She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She traveled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.” That is so true!

For each letter, read a book in which the location name begins with the corresponding letter. For the difficult letters Q, X, Y and Z, you may use locations where the letter appears somewhere in the location name. You can use the location's country or city/town name.

A - Z Places Spell-Out

Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2019

Progress: 15 out of 26 (✸Easy Level: 1 list from A to Z with a combination of real and fictional places)

In Roald Dahl's book, Matilda, there is a wonderful quote: “The books transported her into new world... She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She traveled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.” That is so true!

For each letter, read a book in which the location name begins with the corresponding letter. For the difficult letters Q, X, Y and Z, you may use locations where the letter appears somewhere in the location name. You can use the location's country or city/town name.
