This month’s destination is Spain! Ole! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in Spain. I like to ask my son to read the letter to me for practice. On the right is an activity booklet with games and puzzles. I am always impressed with the variety of educational activities Little Passports manages to fit into four pages. This month includes a recipe for paella! Mmmm…
Every month, Little Passports sends these little collectible items to document the destination. On the left is a luggage tag to put on my son’s suitcase they sent in the welcome package. On the upper right is a sticker for the suitcase. Below that is a sticker of the country’s flag to put in his passport and a pin sticker to mark the world map. Both the passport and the world map were also included in the welcome package.
Another standard item that comes every month is a postcard that usually has the Little Passports characters standing in front of an iconic landmark. This month they are not on the postcard, but this is a beautiful shot of Park Guell in Barcelona. My Mom (the art teacher) will be happy if I note here that this land of mosaics is a reminder of the Moorish influence throughout Spain and Western Europe.
Little Passports also sends a small souvenir every month. This month they sent a set of castanets! I love when the kids get different percussion instruments. It’s fun when they join in on our music making, and even more fun when they make music of their own.
Verdict: We are big fans of Little Passports! They always do a good job helping my son learn about other countries and cultures for a very reasonable subscription price. Plus it really does feel like a nice care package sent from overseas by a relative or other loved one.
