Pack your bags! You’ll be touring the world with sibling Chihuahuas, Bella and Harry, in the adorable, award-winning book series Bella & Harry.
My older daughter is obsessed with Chihuahuas. In fact, she asked Santa for a Chihuahua and a baby brother last year for Christmas. Since her wishes went unfulfilled, she was elated to receive two books from the Bella & Harry series.
We received Bella & Harry: Let’s Visit Edinburgh and Bella & Harry: Let’s Visit Rome. Both books feature famous sights from the title locations and information regarding the significance of each. Although heavy in information, a sweet Chihuahua explaining it to her little brother makes it compelling and totally understandable for children. The personified characters are relatable and funny, such as when Harry desires to be a gladiator in Rome. What little boy wouldn’t love to pretend to swing a sword at the Colosseum?
The Bella & Harry books introduce children to diverse locations from Istanbul to Jerusalem. They’d be great prior to traveling to one of the locations so you could explain some of the famous sights and scenes in advance. If you’re not planning on jet setting to Paris, they still offer an opportunity to learn more about our world and the various cultures that inhabit it. Sadly, my international travels are pretty limited. Reading the book on Edinburgh featured Nessie, the Loch Ness monster, but also taught me a thing or two about Castle Urquhart and Dundee cakes.
Also included in the books are some simple, local phrases with their translations. These is a great appendix to the books and allows the fun to continue as you practice with your clan (that’s Scottish for family, just in case you were wondering). The interactive books don’t end there; the fun continues on BellaAndHarry.com. I can practice my suitcase-packing skills on the website or make masterpieces on the online coloring book.
If your child is ready to pack a suitcase and travel the world, we’ve got a great giveaway for you! One lucky winner will receive copies of Bella & Harry: Let’s Visit Rome and Bella & Harry: Let’s Visit Edinburgh, plus a child-size suitcase. From my famiglia to yours, buona notte and good luck!
