An Armadillo in Paris by Julie Kraulis

Armadillos are odd creatures.  The first time I saw a live one was in Texas and I was amazed!  So how could I skip a story about one visiting Paris?

Tundra Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

This is charming tale of a young armadillo visiting Paris to see the things his grandfather found during his visit there.  This is an easy way to learn about the attractions and history of Paris.  Evidently armadillos eat a lot of pastries.  There's a lot of mention about the iron lady and Arlo can't wait to see her!

These little tastes of Paris may entice your child to learn about the places mentioned.  The illustrations are gorgeous and the iron lady is a well known landmark.  Why not visit a tourism website for Paris and share more pictures with your child?  Who knows, maybe someday you'll be lucky enough to visit there and see those places yourself.

Even if you just stay home and take an armchair tour, Arlo and his grandfather will take you on a grand tour.
