Bella & Harry - Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Lily loves books.  We read together for about 45 minutes a day on average.  I know it's great for her intellectual development, so I am happy to encourage it.


Lily was excited when I showed her two new books to read.  She was even more excited when she figured out they were about two dogs.  (She loves animals.)

Bella & Harry have a clever children's book series about 2 dogs who go visit cities.  Through their dialog, they teach all about the cities they travel to.

We received the books Bella and Harry Let's Visit Paris and Bella and Harry Let's Visit Venice.  I have never been to either city, so I learned a lot in these books.  (Like did you know 'french' in 'french fries' is a cooking term relating to how the potato is sliced?)

Lily was a little young to follow any plot, but she got excited about the dogs on every page and would point excitedly as she barked like a dog.  I think these books would be perfect for older kids that are about to travel to Europe.  What a great way to introduce them to what they will see and what to expect!

Not traveling to Europe anytime soon?  The dogs are still cute, and I learned a lot, so it is still a good series to add to your library.

Do you want a Bella & Harry two book set just like the one I got?  Bella & Harry has generously offered to give 1 of my readers a Bella & Harry Let's Visit Paris book, Bella & Harry Let's Visit Venice book, and Bella and Harry Tote Bag!  (a $45 Value!)
