Young readers are invited to come to Thailand with Bodhi. When she first arrives, Bodhi is overwhelmed and wants to go home. Children watch her take her first tentative steps in this new place. She comes to very much enjoy the sights and the people.
This book is a good one. It shows the importance of exposure to new cultures and teaches something about the country Bodhi is visiting. The illustrations are brightly colored and add to the book’s visual appeal.
Included are a number of Seek and Finds. For each, information is provided beneath the picture. For example, beneath a sea creature is stated “The colorful and territorial Siamese fighting fish is Thailand’s national aquatic animal.” This mans that, in addition to having fun, children will learn something as they look through this title. There is also additional information about Bangkok.
All in all, this is a nice book. I hope that Bodhi will have more adventures.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
