Two books intended to be read aloud to young children - they tell of the adventures of globe-trotting twins. The holidays are exactly those which children can expect to have when their families go on a package trip and they're described very simply, without any hint of the 'funny foreigner' attitude and often with a nice eye for the child's viewpoint ('Mum points out the tiny church but we can't wait to get onto the sand'). The illustrations capture the flavour of each country rather well.
Good for reading and talking about, both before a visit to give an idea of what is to come and afterwards to enable discussion of the child's experiences.both before a visit to give an idea of what is to come and afterwards to enable discussion of the child's experiences.
