My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

What a great children’s book! When Hope, Jun, Lea and Parth go on an adventure to find magic hats for Mr. Globe’s headache, they go to many historic places in London. At each stop there’s a picture of the place they’re at and the name of the place is in bold letters. And every time they find a hat, there’s a picture of the hat on one of their heads and the name of the hat is in bold.

The children look like cute dolls and the pictures of the places they go are real photographs. Not only is this an interesting and fun book for children, but there’s so much for them to learn! They learn about the diverse cultures in London as well as acceptance of other cultures. There’s also, of course, the lesson about the iconic places found in London and the different kinds of hats. As an adult, I learned some things about London that I didn’t know (I’ve never been). One of my favorite things is the map at the beginning and end of the book.

I definitely recommend London Hat Hunting Mission for children of all ages.
