Kirkus Reviews
The impetuous Isabella returns (My Name Is Not Isabella, 2010), offering readers a whirlwind tour of the globe. A leisurely day of helping her father with yard work becomes a glorious adventure for the pint-sized explorer. Fosberry's tale unfolds as an afternoon-long conversation between father and child. With each request Isabella's father makes for her assistance with a project, the imaginative tot saucily explains why she couldn't possibly help. Isabella's sandbox play soon becomes the work of an aspiring archeologist searching for lost tombs, while her tree fort becomes a Mayan temple, perfect for observing the constellations. Isabella's father eagerly participates in his daughter's whimsical game. His wry responses to Isabella's grandiose proclamations are sprinkled with droll humor that will entertain readers both young and old. Fosberry adeptly captures children's endearing ability to re-imagine their world through creative play. Litwin's vivacious illustrations convey Isabella's endless capacity for invention. His color-laden pictures illuminate Isabella's imaginings, artfully transforming a commonplace landscape into the wonders of the world. Informative end pages contain pictures and descriptions of the places featured in the text. Isabella's characteristic ingenuity blossoms in this creative tale that encourages readers to give their imaginations free rein. (Picture book. 4-8)

No flow, no fun to read, not engaging or inspiring, especially for young children.

We have an Isabella which is why we purchased it and she seemed to really like it. Would buy more for her.

Isabella loves to travel! She has visited everywhere! In her imagination. Today, her father has many backyard projects to complete. Join them and follow Isabella around the world. Hott Review The children were captivated. I’m not sure what we enjoyed more – the pictures, Isabella’s imagination, or her personality. I personally, enjoyed the photos and description included in the back to help teach the children a bit more about their travels. This will be a great addition to every library.

New York Times best-selling author, Jennifer Fosberry, continues her Isabella series with Isabella: Girl on the Go. In this book, Isabella, plays side by side with her father as he accomplishes his to-do list. From archaeologist, to astronomer, Isabella travels around the world, exploring the greatest wonders of the world.all without leaving her own backyard. This is a great book, with wonderful, eye-catching illustrations. Funny and educational are always a welcome combination in my house, and that is just what this book delivers. The back pages offers additional information about some of the places Isabella explores. I think it would make a great addition to any homeschool reading list. This mommy recommends this adorable book for children ages 4-6. I give it five stars. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher.
