Traveling to Dublin, Ireland with Bella & Harry!

One of the best things about being a teacher is that I get to read children's books all the time! Some of the newest books I've come across are the 'Bella & Harry' books. 

Bella and Harry are 2 adorable Chihuahuas who travel to many interesting places and learn about the customs, history, and landmarks of that place. It's been really fun learning about other places, especially with the Olympics going on. The kids hear names of places, but don't really know where those places are or anything about them.

The newest book, 'Let's Visit Dublin' is just in time for St. Patrick's Day. In this book, Bella and Harry, take children on a trip to learn about myths such as leprechauns, fairies, and giants. Children will learn about the custom of kissing the Blarney Stone to obtain the gift of gab. They will see just where Dublin is on a map and learn about the physical features of Ireland, The Emerald Isle, and much more.

My kids are loving these books and can't wait for me to get more. Check out the other titles at BellaAndHarry.com. There are interactive games, worksheets, and teacher's guides to go along with most of the books as well. Tons of fun and educational to boot! 

Have a great President's Day!
