Fast on the heels of her debut book, KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris, France, Shannon Jones, recently released KeeKee’s latest travel adventure – ROME!
Considering how much our Little Darling loved visiting Paris with KeeKee, I can’t wait to share KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Rome with him. I don’t know about you, but a little Roman Holiday would be a welcome break from the wintery weather we’ve been having here in Virginia! So what do you think – are you ready to see what KeeKee finds in Rome to amuse herself? Let’s go!
As KeeKee’s balloon descends on Rome she finds herself surrounded by…CATS! Oh my! She’s landed in Rome’s famous cat sanctuary – how purrfect! Instantly among friends, KeeKee makes herself at home and is quite soon in the capable hands of her Roman tour guide, Alfredo – a handsome hound, dressed as a Roman gladiator, what else!
In no time they are off, visiting all the places that KeeKee has been dreaming of – the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Sistine Chapel – with a dip in the Trevi Fountain thrown in for good measure!
As with her trip to Paris, KeeKee learns a little bit of Italian to help her get around – and those words and phrases, along with a list of places to put on your travel itinerary are included at the back of the book.
KeeKee books are smart, fun, educational and imaginative , and loaded with beautiful illustrations that really appeal to children – what more can you ask for in a children’s book today? Don’t forget to sign up for the KeeKee Club so that you can receive the latest information about KeeKee and her travels. Also included are fun coloring pages and other activities for you to print out – have a look!
I can’t wait to see which direction KeeKee is heading for her next adventure. How about you?
Shannon has most generously given me a signed copy of KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Paris, France AND KeeKee’s Big Adventures in Rome, Italy to give away! Watch this space – we will have a giveaway up shortly.
If you are planning a European vacation with your children in the near future – check out Shannon’s blog – Grape Occasions. She has some great posts on Italy there. If you are looking for accommodations further afield for an extended stay in Italy…I suggest you take a look at the family friendly options at Kid & Coe. They currently are offering six properties in Tuscany and eight in Umbria – something to fit everyone’s budget.
