This is what we gave my niece for Christmas. Because her dad travels worldwide for his company she loved this! She grabbed her cell phone ( pretend cell phone she is only 4 ), put on her “glasses” and called China and began making business deals. I loved that she enjoyed it so much. And it is educational and helps to teach our children that diversity is what makes this world so great!
While she was talking to China she moved the wooden puzzle figures around as if they were working. My in laws really work with and encourage their children to learn as much as possible. And the chinese words on each piece was something they really appreciated and enjoyed.
This 32-page story and activity book is narrated by Emma and Joe ( brother and sister ) that are traveling through China. She has three brothers so she was happy that Emma had her brother with her. Her older brother is able to read her the journal while they act out the adventures together with the puzzle pieces.
They have had so much fun with the story cards. Because they have huge imaginations and love to create new adventures and stories together. They pick a card, find the matching image on the playmat and go from there. My niece and nephews ( and their parents ) loved this and I know you and yours will also.
