  22. I had real mixed feelings about this book Whilst is it very pretty to look at, the facts were all over the place and often in a size of font that was about 5 6 Hunting down facts was not something that I wanted to do and there needed to be a better plan, I felt, in relation to balancing the artwork and the words On saying this, the information I read on regarding the history of Paris was interesting I just felt the editing process needed to be smoother


  23. This book is wonderful, and I m only a bit biased because I am obsessed with the beautiful city of Paris, France This book and its series will get kids excited and interested in travel and other cultures There is the main, bold text of the story to read aloud to a preschool class, and for one on one reading or with kids who are extremely engaged, there are smaller text blurbs inserted throughout with even in depth information about the City of Lights.


  24. This book is a mix of non fictional facts and trivia about Paris and also a fictional tale of a man and his granddaughter touring the city Personally I didn t find it that exciting however, if you were planning a trip to Paris or have been before I m sure this would be an fascinating read, being able to preview the sights and learn some of the history.


  25. Part picture book, part beginner travel guide, this book is full of fun facts and and detailed illustrations of Paris A girl and her grandfather tour the popular tourist spots A short index on the endpaper lists the sites they visited Perfect for any young fans of Madeline or any kids with who ve been bitten by the travel bug.


  26. A Walk in Paris by Salvatore Rubbino is the story of a young girl and her grandfather, who take a walk through Paris In addition to the story, there are several informative facts regarding Paris There is even a foldable of the Eiffel Tower I think this book is excellent for younger students are interested in learning about Paris famous landmarks.


  27. I love this book for many reasons 1 I love the illustrations 2 it would be great for an ADD student like we talked about in class, scattered books are made for those students 3 it is educational 4 the reader can relate to the story as the grandpa takes her through Paris the book gives the experience of walking around Paris while also intercorrelating facts.
