Where is Robin? USA
Author Robin Barone Illustrator Robyn Mitchell
Take flight with Robin as she travels throughout the USA. Fly over towering skyscrapers and across gigantic bridges and historic landmarks. Have fun exploring and discovering all the wonderful cultures and traditions this land has to offer. Through all of her adventures, Robin connects with local people and places to discover their culture, history, and why they are unique.
This is the first book in a series. I should start by saying the quality of the book and its pages is fantastic. It’s hardcover and has beautiful and super vivid illustrations. At the end of the book there is a fold out map of the US. It’s awesome and I could see readers wanting the option of purchasing this map in large scale for playrooms, dens and classrooms. The book takes a bird, Robin, on a journey through the fifty states in the US. It is an educational journey as Robin shares traditions in the different areas of the USA. The length of the book is on the longer side so I would recommend it for elementary aged children in grades 2-5. It can easily be used as a teaching guide in the classroom. I would suggest the author and publisher team up with an educator to create a Reader’s Guide to be used alongside the book. In our family, we love when we can “go beyond the book.”
Where is Robin? Los Angeles
Author Robin Barone Illustrator Rachel Gozhansky
Readers will fall in love with the “City of Angels” as Robin guides them on a tour of Los Angeles. From the Marina del Rey and beautiful Venice Beach, travel to the heart of downtown to visit astonishing landmarks such as the Hollywood sign, the Walk of Fame, Sunset Boulevard, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Century City, and so much more. Through all of her adventures, Robin connects with local people and places to discover their culture, history, and why they are unique.
This book is the second book in the Where is Robin series. It can easily be purchased as a coffee table book for households living in the areas. The level of quality is top notch with clear, crips colors through out this hardcover children’s picture book. The book is written in rhyme and teaches readers all about the culture, traditions and beauty of the city of Los Angeles. This book would be perfect as a part of school curriculums in CA and would make a great addition to any families bookshelf. Narrative nonfiction is a great way to teach children important facts while having a fun journey along the way..
