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!
