We get a lot of adorable books here and several are reviewed over on thriftymommasbrainfood, my books blog, but this is one that’s distinctive. Picture a children’s picture books series narrated by a cute pair of dogs who travel the world. Bella and Harry are adorable chihuahuas who travel and share their adventures in each new destination. The detail in each travel destination feature book is educational and interesting.
My youngest enjoyed hearing about clan flags, kilts and coats of armour in the Bella and Harry go to Edinburgh book. I enjoyed Bella and Harry in Rome, tripping through the Colosseum. There are a few native words thrown in too.
These books are definitely intended for children 4 and up to maybe nine at the most.
The Bella & Harry series was developed to inspire young readers to embrace the world and encourage its exploration. Done through the comedic and informative adventures of sibling Chihuahuas Bella and Harry, while traveling through various countries, the series aspires to stimulate children’s imaginations and foster a thirst for understanding the world in which they live.
Edinburgh and Rome are the seventh and eighth books in the series. Paris, Venice, London, Cairo, Athens, Barcelona, Istanbul and Jerusalem are also available.

This one gets a $$$$ out of $$$$$. It’s cute and educational and I loved the characters of Bella and Harry. Who doesn’t enjoy learning a few new words in a different language and who does not love chihuahuas? I received some product for free to facilitate this review/giveaway.
