Overview

Following the phenomenal success of Babar's Yoga for Elephants and Babar's Museum, Larent de Brunhoff's latest, all-new Babar adventure will take children on a world tour they'll never forget!

As Babar said to his children, "We are taking you around the world." And so he does in Babar's World Tour, the latest from the venerable storyteller and artist Laurent de Brunhoff. Our favorite elephant family visits a number of countries around the globe. First stop is Italy where they learn to say, "Buon Giorno! Hello!" After that, its' off to Germany, Spain (where they learn to flamenco dance!), Russia, India, Japan and Thailand (for snorkeling). Then Mexico, the Southwest United States, Egypt, Antarctica, and of course, France (just in time for a fashion show!).

In this adventurous addition to the Babar series, children are introduced to an international array of cities, customs and languages as they learn to say "hello" in each new country. Babar's World Tour is enjoyable and entertaining for armchair travelers of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The adventures of Babar continue. In this exciting episode, Laurent De Brunhof's beloved elephant takes a global tour that includes stops in Italy, Germany, Spain, Russia, India, Japan, Thailand, Mexico, the United States, Egypt, Antarctica, and, of course, France. Along the way, young readers are introduced to the languages and customs of their hosts. A pachyderm-sized treat.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Babar and Queen Celeste decide to embark on a world tour with the children. They head to the airport and board "Elephant One," equipped with a library and language CDs. The first stop is Italy, followed by Germany, Spain, and Russia, where they learn to say hello and a simple phrase in the host language. They move on to India, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, and across the Pacific to the Anasazi caves of the American Southwest, Machu Picchu in Peru, then across the Atlantic to Egypt. Here the story begins to feel like one of those 14 countries in 14 days package deals and readers, along with Babar's children, will get jet lagged. But they cannot forego Paris or Antarctica so they make two more stops before flying home. In contrast to the wild and unpredictable adventures in Jean de Brunhoff's The Travels of Babar (Random, 2002), this is a tame journey, with the elephants traveling in style and with a well-organized itinerary. Unfortunately, the adventure is lacking, and readers are dizzied by the pace of travel and will forget the foreign phrases. The illustrations are charming, classic Babar. Devoted fans might enjoy the continuation of the king's story. Stick with the originals.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
