Our latest Parragon Book Buddy book is Around The World We Go. From looking at the front cover you can tell that this is a book about different cultures, nationalities and countries. It’s a book completely different to any other picture books that we’ve read with LP. I was looking forward to seeing what she’d think of it.

What is the Around the World We Go book summary?

Around The World We Go has so much to teach – The continents, landmarks and languages. The book teaches that so much is different around the world. People say hello differently and they are surrounded by different things but most of these things are irrelevant. We are all the same when it comes to playing!

Each page was illustrated with colourful pictures that Dave and I could recognise easily and teach to LP. There were pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum and more. LP loved looking at the pictures and pointing out the things she recognised – Boats, Kites, Rockets. There were a lot of things in each picture for LP to spot. She loved just looking at the pictures.

The story in the book is full of repetition that would make it easy for children to learn. It also had a catchy, sing-song-like quality to it that we really enjoyed. LP is just starting to show an interest in rhyming and songs. Because of that this sort of book really appeals to her. LP loved to listen to all Around the World We Go read aloud, especially as it had such a musical quality to it.

  1. This looks like a great book – I’m really looking forward to Toby getting to the age when he can start enjoying stories rather than just trying to eat the pages! And on a completely different note – I love your massive armchair!!

    1. We went from having 2 3.5 seat sofas to deciding on a 4 seater sofa and armchair to try and open the room up a bit. We love it, definitely made the right decision!
