There’s very few things I like more in the world than traveling, that’s why any book related to traveling, geography or other countries and cultures is a must in our home.
While The Worldwide Adventures of Rohini Molini series is in English, I wanted to review it because of its message about teaching children that there’s more to the world than just their town. Rohini Molini is a 5-year-old girl who goes on short adventures to a different country in each book together with her dog Bugle and her little neighbors Jackson and Florence. So far they’ve visited Australia, Spain, India and Thailand. Turkey is next.
The one about Spain has Rohini and her friends learning about Flamenco dancing, the difference between a siesta and a fiesta, and churros con chocolate caliente (yum!). Each book in the series includes additional illustrated information about each country as well as a map, which gives you the opportunity to expand on the geography & cultural lesson.
I highly recommend taking a look at their website for lots of activities that go with the books and so that your kids can vote on which country Rohini & her friends should visit next.
