If you've ever considered traveling with toddlers, and concluded they're too young to benefit from an international trip, think again.
Open Grammy Takes Logan to Switzerland and join three-year-old Logan as he describes his adventures.
• He experiences five forms of transportation (a subject that fascinates most young travelers).
• He learns four icons that are associated with Switzerland.
• He takes you to a folk festival, shows you the ins and outs of paragliding, samples great playground equipment, and shares incredible landscapes while hiking in the high meadows of the Swiss Oberland.
Along the way, you ride a bus through the mountains, marvel at waterfalls, stomp your feet to local music, take part in a parade of cows, and watch a paraglider don his gear, launch into space, and float to the valley below...all through vivid video clips you activate with a tap of a finger.
If you've never heard the distinctive horn of a Swiss postal bus as it enters a blind curve, well, you can't leave this book without humming its quintessential melody.
Then there's the magical tinkling of cowbells that echo up and down the hillsides.
In the process of experiencing Grammy Takes Logan to Switzerland, a pre-reader child develops a sight vocabulary of eight words that are anchored in self-correcting, fun games at the end of the book.
You'll feel like you've been to Switzerland when you share this picture book with your child. And, you just might decide to plan a trip of your own!
All three of Janet Dieman's books are delightful. This one focuses on her trip to Switzerland. The interactive nature of this is what makes it so special. I want to pack up for the mountains this very instant. The fun of a visual, photos and video, are what make this such a special experience. As a former teacher and now a librarian, I can see so many applications for this book. Can't wait to share it with my granddaughter. Maybe we'll make this trip ourselves!
Pleasure of travel with grandkids
Janet Dieman’s grandchildren are so lucky. She takes all of the anxiety out of the prospect of traveling with children. Her flexible, calm attitude and knowledge would be an asset in any group travel but especially a group which includes children. Her interactive travel books are not only full of fascinating facts but they open adult eyes to the reality that children will add to the pleasure of travel. Children can and will create many moments when they lead and teach and the grandparents follow and learn. Well done, Ms. Dieman.
Off to Switzerland!
My grandchildren loved this book esp. the added photos and videos which allowed them to feel they were actually in Switzerland.Very innovative, educational, and FUN! Great introduction to travel! We are saving our money because the kids want to go to Switzerland after reading this book!
