Review: This kids book was only meh. There’s 32 pages but only 7 places in Italy covered (and technically one is actually another country)? C’mon. That’s ridiculous. This books went over: Vactican City (again its own country), Pompeii, Venice Canals, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Amalfi Coast, Lake Como, and the Colosseum. Here’s 7 more places in Italy that they left out: Mount Etna, Spanish Steps, Milan Cathedral, Bridges of Sighs, Boboli Gardens, Trevi Fountain, and Doge’s Palace. A reason that those and many other sites were combed over was because after each tourist destination, there was a double page spread of a photo of the place. Complete unnecessary. The photos were lovely, but I was irritated enough with the bad use of space in this book that I rated this as I did. It could have been a lot better.
Worst part: C’mon there could have been more.
Best part: Pretty picutres
Recommend For: Parents and teachers
