Jennifer Fosberry and Mike Litwin, who brought us My Name Is Not Isabella, have added a new adventure for spunky, purple-haired Isabella. In Isabella: Girl on the Go, she is an explorer discovering some of the great places of the world as she works with her dad in her own backyard.
The day starts with Isabella playing in a sandbox and her dad asking his “favorite little girl” for help. “I am not a little girl,” she replies. “Then who is going to help me today?” asked the father. Isabella replies, “I am an archeologist, searching the hottest, driest desert for the tomb of a king.”
As the day goes on, Isabella becomes an artist in Paris, a Chinese warrior building the Great Wall, an astronomer at a Mayan temple and more. When the day comes to an end her father takes her hand and asks, “Where are we headed now?” By this time Isabella has explored the world and discovered that the most wonderful place is home.
The back of the book features information on all the places Isabella imagines she travels to, perfect for extending the learning when you read this book to your child. The illustrations and the story will have you coming back to read this over and over again. I highly recommend it.
The publisher provided me with a copy of this book to review.
