Designed to turn a vacation into exploration, this artfully designed set includes thirty interactive city cards filled with facts and activities. Young jetsetters will learn words and phrases in Italian, reflect on what they experience, draw what they see, and take a quiz about Rome to keep them on their toes. While the guide is meant to be used while visiting Rome (San Francisco and Paris are up next), they can certainly be used as a learning resource at home too.
