This month’s destination is Canada! You know, I think people in the United States tend to take Canada for granted sometimes (myself included). It’s a whole other country, and it’s totally different! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in Canada. 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.
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. I don’t recognize a landmark in this picture, and I’m not even sure what part of Canada this is from. Anyone? It’s beautiful, though. I would love to be somewhere cold right now!
Little Passports also sends a small souvenir every month. This month they sent a whistle to wear around the neck. My eight-year old loves it, obviously, as the main goal of children is to make noise at all times. It’s pretty sturdy for a play whistle and has a good loud sound. I just don’t fully understand the significance of the military-looking whistle in Canada. Does it have something to do with moose?
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. This is two months in a row that they have sent us things from a destination that’s cold (while we are sweating to death here in Georgia). I think it’s a good way to make children aware of how very different life is in different countries!
