Travel with Ramona Recommends

Since it is Tuesday, I am joining up with Ramona Recommends' Picture Book Tour!  She wants us to share picture books from our traveling destinations or hometowns.  Such a great idea for summer!


Whenever I travel, I try to pick up a picture book about my destination.  I want to share my experiences and other cultures with my students, especially those who don't have the opportunity to do so with their own families.  

My first book, however, is from my own state.  I chose the story, The Brass Ring, by Nancy Tafuri.  It is a beautifully written and illustrated story about how a young girl is now old enough to ride The Flying Horse Carousel, which is located in Rhode Island.  This carousel is unique because it is the oldest operating platform carousel in America.


Last year, I took part in a collaborative blogging project, organized by Growing Book by Book, called Booking Across the USA.  I put together a packet to accompany the book, but it can also be used on its own.

I hope Courtney continues this linky all summer long because I have a few trips planned and I"ll be picking up some new books for sure!


One of those trips is Vegas, Baby!  I'm leaving tomorrow to head out west to attend the TpT conference and I am so excited!  To celebrate, my store is on sale for the rest of the week!

  2. It is a good thing that you shared your travel stories with others. In this way everyone can be aware of different areas of this world. This world is very vast and offering us numerous aspects of nature and attractive destinations. I also love to see different areas. Rhode Island is very beautiful and attractive. I visited it with my friends before my tour buses to boston from dc It is located in the United States. It has two different natural regions. Its official nickname is “The Ocean State”. It is smaller in area but the eighth least crowded area.
