Join a young boy as he hops around the globe, visiting friends in 13 different countries spanning all 6 populated continents. Along the way, he introduces us to each friend’s environment and customs, and shares interesting facts about each country’s culture, language, food, geography, wildlife, landmarks and more. Each country has a dedicated spread with a small map that shows geography and landmarks, letting readers imagine they are traveling, too. The format makes it easy to spot similarities and differences between countries.
“Can easily appeal beyond an American readership.” — Publishers Weekly
“The book’s inviting design resembles a scrapbook, with small, fact-filled vignettes sprinkled across the pages… will undoubtedly inspire young armchair travelers.” — The National Reading Campaign
