Abigail and the North Pole Adventure — Written by Tali Carmi and illustrated by Neda Fuchedzhieva
If you’d like your children to learn about other cultures and to become excited about travelling, then this is the book series for your family. This would be great to read to young children, or older beginner readers could read this on their own – recommended by the author for readers 2-8 years of age (K-3).
In Abigail and the North Pole Adventure a magical bicycle and book from her grandparents is used to transport Abigail to new places. Looking at pictures in the magical book she decide where to go, then says the magic words: “Take me there, let me see, show me where I want to be.” Previous trips mentioned are the Sahara desert and the Amazon jungle.
She meets Siku, who shows her an igloo she built; something all children must learn to do. And then takes her fishing – which is their main source of food! They also meet a little Polar Bear cub, who we learn fishes through the ice too… but then the ice breaks, trapping him on the ice flow! How will they manage to save him!? And what about the twist at the end with her Grandfather – I thought that was pretty cool! Read the book to find out more!
This is an awesome story with really well done pictures. Children would definitely learn a little about the location, culture and customs examined in locations she visits.
