Booklist - 03/01/2022 Do kids write postcards anymore? Well, if they go on worldwide adventures with Grandma Rose, they’ll want to! Grandma’s always traveling for work, but for the first time, a multiracial child gets to go along for the wild ride. They wheel through National Parks (Banff, Canyonlands, Crazy Horse Monument) and continents (they eat a banh mi in Vietnam, bike past elephants in Botswana, visit marsupials in Tasmania, raft a jungle river in Costa Rica, and folk dance on Cape Breton Island). Each adventure displays a descriptive postcard, which includes information about authentic food, greetings, animals, and spectacular scenery. Back home, the family is encouraged to bike around the neighborhood, seeking new adventures. Children will absorb a geography lesson as they follow Grandma’s red-dotted trail around the world using the closing endpapers. colorful cameos and half- and full-page spreads done in digital paint and watercolor depict the pair’s exploits at each location. Not only will kids get an exciting travelogue and a clever introduction to geography, they will also get pointers on letter writing and developing careful observation skills. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
