KeeKee's Big Adventures in Paris, France is the first book in a new children's series about a charming calico cat named KeeKee that travels the world in her hot air balloon. The books are written by Shannon Jones and illustrated by Casey Uhelski.
This is a lovely picture book for kids under the age of 7 or 8 to enjoy with their parents at storytime or for early readers to tackle themselves. It introduces readers to the highlights of Paris including famous landmarks, culture, language, and food as KeeKee explores the city.
The KeeKee's Big Adventures website has activities for parents and kids and a KeeKee Club for members will be launched this week. Parents preparing for a trip to Paris with their children will love the online activities - including a recipe for making Croque Monsieur, colouring pages, French/English word games, and a pocket guide that can be downloaded and printed for kids to carry with them when they are in Paris. Club members will have access to behind the scenes information and will be able to vote on upcoming locations for KeeKee to visit.
This delightful book would be excellent for introducing young children to Paris prior to a trip or just for teaching them about other countries in a fun way and piquing their curiousity about the world. Next up for KeeKee the calico cat is Rome, Italy and the book about her adventures is scheduled to be released in November 2013.
