Sometimes we get lonely when we travel, and we get homesick for the things of home. Maybe this has happened to you. This book written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, is a little bit different. Yes, it is a travel book in the sense that it shows you some of the fun things you can do and see, but it is also two other things. It s a book about getting homesick, and it is a book that repeats phrases and uses rhyme and word recognition so you can learn to read and shout out what is coming next in the rhyme. Dyan and Weigand want you to go ahead and have some fun and at the same time learn as you explore the town of Regensburg, Germany through the words of Penelope Dyan and the camera lens of John D. Weigand. Yes, learn all you can about this little city along the great River Danube, but also remember it is just as important sometimes to set aside the museums and all the facts about what happened where and when, and to just remember to be a kid! Dyan sees through the eyes of a child and writes what she feels about a place, and what she sees. This always makes her books very different, educational, interesting and fun. Dyan wants you to learn to learn with your eyes. Look for the Bellissima videos on the Bellissimavideo YouTube Channel for even more learning fun!
