Publisher Description

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland

In this lavishly illustrated, multimedia, sight & sound ebook, seven-year-old Foster invites you to come along with him on a two-week romp through the mountains and valleys of the magnificent Swiss alps. He’ll show you some of the favorite places from his first trip (when he was three), then take you along to share in his new adventures.

So pack your bag, put on your travel shoes and prepare to

• Fly across the Atlantic to Zürich

• Take a room-by-room tour of a Swiss chalet, and watch the Alpen glow from its balcony

• Ride on trains, funiculars, cog railways, paddlewheel boats, buses, cablecars, gondolas, and even a dog sled on Europe’s longest glacier

• Watch fearless hang gliders and paragliders take off, soar through the air, and land

• Admire frozen sculptures in an ice palace

• Witness cows noisily parading in the high meadows

• Follow the intricate process of cheesemaking

• Marvel at plunging waterfalls

• Learn the rules of the road and drive a miniature car

• Say thank you in German, French and Italian

• Hike along lakes and through forests while searching for marmots and trolls

• Time travel in an outdoor museum with centuries-old homes, hand tools you can use, fragrant vegetable and herb gardens, and farm animals you can pet

All these are brought to life with over 200 pictures embedded in slideshows and photo galleries that you control, plus video clips that respond to your tap and engage your ears with the sounds of cowbells, bus horns, and steam engines.

Thanks to digital technology, Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland is the next best thing to actually being there. And when you do go, you’ll wish that Foster were at your side.

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland

Janet McCrea Dieman has given the reader a gift. To see the sights and experience the sounds of Switzerland through the eyes of her 7 year old grandson, Foster, makes me feel like I’ve been there. She tells a story and along the way you hear and see exactly what she and her grandson saw and heard as they traveled through Switzerland.

Whether you are a grandparent, a child, a teacher or just someone who wants to learn about another country, this is the book for you. Every library should have a copy and every grandparent should experience this book with their grandchild.

Don’t miss reading this superbly written interactive book as well as the other books in Janet’s “Travel With Kids Series”.

A gem!

What a gem of a book! As a retired teacher, now a librarian, I find this book contains a wealth in information about Switzerland presented in such a fun way. From a child's perspective it is full of clear understandable pictures. The interactive photo galleries and short videos are a perfect compliment to the easy to read text. My granddaughter loved the activities at the end of the book. This would be a great source for any age planning a trip to Switzerland. A real find!

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland is a delightful book that describes a wonderful experience for Foster. As an adult I enjoyed the beautiful pictures and looked forward to seeing some of the same things on my Switzerland trip. After I returned home, it was so much fun to look at the book again and relive great memories of my trip.
