I'll be giving away the first of the Adventure Bear Cubs books, a neat new series of travel books for children. The book comes with a very cute stuffed bear, and a drawstring backpack.
Adventure Bear Cubs: Exploring Boston, by Pat Krippendorf, ISBN 9780983049005, 2011
Recommended for children age 3 and up.
This is a very neat little package, aimed at making a visit to Boston fun and educational for young children. The book itself is a slim, colorful volume loaded with Krippendorf's own excellent photographs of Boston's historic sites and tourist attractions, including Castle Island, Old Ironsides, the Old and New State Houses, the Duck Boats, and the biggest milk bottle in the world! (At Boston's Children's Museum.) Each photograph--with the bear featured prominently, exploring Boston--is accompanied by information, questions, and activity suggestions geared to a child's understanding and aimed at keeping the child engaged and entertained.
