Come along on a trip through Europe and encounter other cultures! We’ll ride on a dogsled through Finland’s snowy landscapes, fortify ourselves with tea and scones in Great Britain and then visit Portugal to see Europe’s longest bridge, splash around in the Mediterranean and hike through the Siebengebirge mountains. Maps provide children with a geographic overview. In addition, texts and images introduce the respective countries and their particular characteristics. Using flaps, children can explore caves in Slovakia, admire the Vatican or look over the shoulder of a comic artist in Belgium. In addition, the book explains what the European Union is and the different ways of life in Europe.
