We have loved this new addition to our book family. Witty, informative and colourful; what more does a kid with an interest in the world and words need? Judging by the amount of times we have read the story so far and the smiles on Petit's face, I would say, not much.

Oooh looks super good, love a good book recommendation! The Doctor is always talking about the 'oval' tower. I don't have the heart to correct him!

Hi Shelley
This is just wonderful. I want this book for myself .. haha
I think there is nothing better than introducing children to travel and different cultures. I've always had a strong fascination with culture myself but have no idea where it originated. Have a great week.. x Julie

we're still enjoying this book. i really do recommend it for little people and big people; especially if you are wanting to open them up to other places. petit is so into the idea of seeing the eiffel tower that all my family and half my friends want to be there when he eventually does!! x
