My Thoughts

Curious Kids Go on Vacation is a fun yet educational book for beginning readers. Also a book to read to curious children not yet reading but eager to learn. There are more pictures in this book than I care to count.  Although I just might count them later.

Read about going on a vacation by looking at the pictures and reading the words under the pictures. The same for things you might see while riding in the car, on the train, at the beach, on ferry, out camping, in the mountains, on a rainy day or at the airport. There is so much to see.

This book will be a great adventure while learning to read and recognize objects, vehicles, places and images. How about sizing things up like cars and people all kinds of things that are small, medium and large.

This is a must for all the curious children.

I highly recommend this book for children ages 2-5.

I rated this busy little book a 5 out of 5.

  1. I will probably give the book to my four-year-old nephew or put it in my school library. Search and find books are always popular.
