Take a gentle stroll through the delights of Paris in the pages of Salvatore Rubbino’s picture book, A Walk In Paris.
Much like the city itself, Rubbino’s creation is a feast for the eyes.
A little girl is taken on a trip to Paris by her grandfather, who delights in pointing out the wonderful sites – from the metro to the Louvre, from the giddy heights of the Chimera Gallery to the tempting morsels on displays in those delicious pâtisseries. A Walk in Paris captures the elegant, vibrant tone of the French capital.
Follow the main, bold text that meanders through the illustrative rich pages to accompany the duo on their adventure. Subsequent readings will be rewarded through the discovery of small snippets of text which provide so much more information.
I love that Rubbino has made the French language a feature here, translations of key words are provided encouraging readers to discover a new language too.
Rubbino’s illustrations are rich with detail too – I adore picture books which are made to be poured over like this one …
A Walk In Paris, like Salvatore’s previous books in this series, encourage a wonder and enthusiasm for travel & discovery in young readers.
