Scavenger Hunt Adventures
Over the last year author Catherine Aragon has been publishing a lovely new series of kids’ books. I have 10 copies to give away to Mums do travel readers. Each book in The Scavenger Hunt Adventure series leads the reader through the key sites of a city in a fun and engaging way. So far there are Scavenger Hunt Adventure books for London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Washington D.C. and New York City and more titles are on their way. The books are great for when you’re travelling to the cities which they describe.
Catherine sent me both the paperback and the Kindle versions of Mission Paris: A Scavenger Hunt Adventure to review.
Mission Paris: A Scavenger Hunt Adventure
The book starts with a briefing from the SIA (Secret International Agency) for its Special Agents (i.e. the child reading the book) and their Case Officers (i.e. the adults with them). The briefing explains that Agents will have to visit key places in Paris and collect specific information from there. When they’ve finished the hunt the Agents (with their adult Case Officers) can visit the Scavenger Hunt Adventures website to collect their official SIA certificate.
The main part of the book consists of individual missions for the main Paris monuments. So there’s a section for Notre Dame, another for the Louvre, one for the Eiffel Tower and so on. The tasks are by turns surprising, fun and imaginative. For example ‘Find the gargoyle munching on some grapes’ at Notre Dame or ‘Track down the mummy of a cat’ at the Louvre. Besides the tasks there’s also quite a lot of interesting information about the sights.
Speaking from my own experience both as a child and as a parent, sightseeing can often be quite boring for kids and I think that this book would be a great way to engage children when you’re on a cultural city break.
The Kindle version can be viewed on Kindles (obviously), iPads or computers. I have it on my iPad but I think that I prefer the paperback version as it would be easier to use and lighter to carry when you’re out and about. It would easily fit into a handbag or backpack and the paper is quite thick so I think that the book would be quite durable.
This is a fun and interesting book series for kids and I would recommend it.
Scavenger Hunt Adventure books are all available from Amazon. Here are the links to the Kindle versions in case you want to look at or buy any of them (please note that if you do buy anything by clicking on these links then I will receive a small commission):
