Children's Book Review The Seven Wonders of the World (My First Travel Books Book 3)-Anna Othitis

Wednesday, February 11, 2015


This book is both educational and entertaining. It is geared for children between 4 and 9 years of age (I asked the author!) but I bet older and younger children might enjoy it as well. It would be perfect for schools, home schooling or for any parent about to depart on a vacation with their child or one who just wants this knowledge imparted to their children. It takes the reader on a tour of the 7 Wonders of the world. Your child will see the flags of the different countries where these wonders are located as well as a simple map showing the different countries. A bit of history of the regions is also included and how these wonders came to be. After each section of the book there are a short series of questions to see if your child actually got it and is remembering what they learned. The illustrations will keep them captivated!

Anna Othitis lived and was raised in the beautiful land and country of Zimbabwe, Africa (home will always be home. She left all of her life long memories, endless charity work and good people behind vowing that she will continue supporting the needy children in her land Zimbabwe, Africa and beyond.

Her husband George, sons Johnny, Elia and Frankie encouraged her to write her first children's book titled "My First Travel Book", inspired by Frankie (Captain Frankie), who is graduating from his Masters degree in Aeronautical Science and beginning his career as a professional pilot. Anna's favorite saying is "Be Bold Be Brave".

She was inspired to write her children's books with a vision to link up the children Africa and of the world on Angelic Airlines to so many beautiful places of interest and popularity on our wonderful planet Earth with all its beautiful some natural and some man made creations and resources. One of the beautiful natural wonders featured in her books is in her birth land of Zimbabwe "The Mighty Victoria Falls" All of her books educate our children and widen their scope of interest in the amazing surroundings, creations and nature to appreciate and look after our environment for many generations still to come.
