5 stars! Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite:

“All Across Europe by Ellen Weisberg and Ken Yoffe is a fascinating,informative, and educational book for children that takes them on a joy ride to the beautiful continent of Europe. The book gives in-depth details about the continent through the eyes of five friends; Mickey, Tricia, Stevie, Ernie, and Wendy. Each one of them takes readers through the different regions of Europe where around 800 million people from diverse backgrounds live. Readers get to know about the impressive structures in the different regions of the continent,the history, the food, culture, the weather, and landscape that make Europe what it is.

“The book gives readers necessary and useful information about places in Europe. Coupled with verses and interesting illustrations, the book reaches out to children who want to know more about the fascinating places in Europe. It’s definitely a splendid journey with these five friends as readers explore this incredible continent. I would recommend this book to all school and public libraries as it works as a good reference guide. It can also be used for bedtime story-telling.The introduction to the places is simple and easy for children to understand and remember.

“Books like this are welcome as they make learning and teaching attractive and fun. These kinds of stories are the best way children can be taught and also infuse in them a liking for traveling and exploring new destinations. What a charming and fascinating way to tell children all about the continent of Europe!
