Did you ever get it for your kids?
The elementary school had it so while our kids enjoyed it at school they wanted different games at home.
No skin off my nose! It saved me from buying it and then having it gather dust because the kids wouldn’t play it.
Well, there is now a children’s picture book called Where is Robin written by Robin Barone. This book sort of reminds me of the computer game. Only it’s much easier to snuggle while reading the book than playing the computer game. 🙂
In the book, a little robin tells his mama that he is curious about the world. And that he wants to know more about it.
So, with her blessing, he flies off.
His first stop is Philadelphia. There’s lots to see there — Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Constitution Center.
After visiting that city, Robin is off for more adventures. To places like Washington, D. C. and Nashville.
And to other places such as the Florida Keys (love the key lime pie there!) and New Orleans (that is on my bucket list to visit!).
Robin also visits places like the Space Needle in Seattle, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.
When Robin is finished visiting all of these wonderful places, he heads back home to his mama!
This book is a terrific springboard for conversations about the wonderful places that there are to see in the United States. While all of the places just receive a brief mention, you can take a few minutes to share your knowledge or experiences of the different places.
You could help your grandchild find out more about the places that she expresses an interest in.
You could print off a map that is just an outline of the states. Then your grandchild could fill in the interesting places that little Robin visits.
Your grandchild could add the places in the U.S. that she’s visited!
One of the things that I really like about this book is the texture of the cover. It feels rubbery. Sort of. This will resist food spills. It won’t be easily torn. It will be really durable and will hold up through many repeated readings.
Where is Robin is for children ages 4 to 8 years old and helps them to become aware of the world around them. You can get the book for $16.95 through Diplomat Books.
