Most of you who follow or visit my blog on occasion know that I have a little girl. She's almost 4 years old and thankfully she's already catching on to my love of reading. She's all about books, which is awesome. So when Samantha from JKScommunications contacted me about possibly reviewing a children's book. I jumped on it. I can't tell you how excited Aubrey was to actually be getting a book in the mail for her!
And look at how cute it was packaged! Thank you! She was ecstatic. (side note, yes her hair was a hot mess, we got this days before her hair apt. lol)
Not only was the packaging adorable, the whole book was too. It's hard to do a written review on a little kids books, so I took some pictures. Bronte & Frank go to Moscow is a whole lot more than just a book. It's full of activities and even a cd. I have not actually played the cd for her yet, only because I keep forgetting to put it in my car. I listened to it, and its sweet. There are sounds from Russia, and Bronte talks in her little girl voice, I know that when I finally do put it on for her, I'll have to listen to it for days on end. lol.
While I loved the convenience of the spiral binding, she was more interested in frank the bear, and how cold he must be. lol. I'll be honest, in the near future, my family will probably not be visiting Russia. With that being said, we both still enjoyed this book. The illustrations are so cute.
Another great thing about this book, is the educational stuff towards the end. There are maps, stickers, language guides. It's really neat! You sure get your bang for the buck with this and I'm not being corny, really. From what I saw, when I was looking into it a bit, there will be more books, visiting other places. This mom will for sure keep up with the collection.
With Aubrey being as young as she is, she might not have gotten as much out of it as some older children would, as far as understanding goes, but she loved the pictures, and enjoyed the story while I read it to her. It definitely gets a huge thumbs up from us! :o)
