This was the first worldwide adventure that I read with my niece. I LOVED all the landmarks that were in Framed in France and we drew some of them. The Paris facts, in the back of the book, are great for kids to learn. They are taught in a fun way too. The Mona Lisa is such a well-known painting. I enjoyed reading about it being stolen, it was an interesting mystery. It was nice to have Stanley explore the city!
This is a great book for kids that hate to read history books. Reading Framed in France is a fun way to learn about different places while reading a great story.
I’m giving this book a 4.5 or of 5 stars.
