Books for Italy week
We are lucky this week, there are three Bella and Harry books for Italy – Let’s visit Florence, Let’s visit Venice and Let’s visit Rome. We haven’t read the Let’s visit Florence book yet, but we certainly love the other two. See my post on the Bella and Harry adventure series for more on why we love these books! My pre-schooler’s favourite is definitely Lets visit Venice. We have read this many times since our ‘Italy week’. He just loves the fact that Bella falls out of a gondola and gets wet! The book inspired our Venetian mask craft activity – see my post here.
The other book we have loved as part of Italy week is ‘Androcles and the Lion’ which we got from an Usborne Young Reading set. It is a great, light-hearted story that introduces various concepts from ancient Rome such as gladiators and the Colosseum. We love it!
