Book Review - Where on Earth Am I?
Unlike any other book out there...it's a book, activities, coloring pages, a year-long journal, a keepsake, and more - ALL IN ONE. With its unique double-sided design, it gives parents an easy way to connect with their kids, all while having a blast sharing fun facts about each other (like what 3 people they'd choose to run a relay race!)
On one side, you'll find "Where on Earth Am I?" an interactive story about Fassa, a cat who sees the world from a unique purrrspective. Along with the story, this side has plot twists, easy-to-do activities, coloring pages, a hidden picture search, a fun quiz, and more! On the flipside, you'll find "Fassa's 52 Weeks of Fun" - an easy, silly way for children to express and share things about themselves throughout a year in their life. Along with 52 prompted journal entries, each week also features a kid-friendly quote,a word definition from "Where on Earth Am I", and a hilarious joke your child will love to tell.
My Take on the Book
This book has two parts. One half is a story about Fassa, the cat, and his eventual adoption by a human. This half has the story which the child and family read together and following the story are all kinds of activities to do relating to what happened in the story. It is a section dedicated to relating your own discoveries and feelings about events. There are lots of questions to answer and lots of good discussion questions for the entire family.
The other half, flip the book around, is totally different. Each page is an activity page that focuses on the child who is writing in the book. For example they write their name , attach their picture, write in their height and weight, foot measurement, etc. Each page has a joke, word with its definition , quote by a famous person, and then an activity at the bottom of the page.
A child that enjoys writing and working in activity books about "him or her" would find this a worthy way to spend free time. It looks like fun to me!
