Have you imagined going to a wall full of gum? Or have you imagined going whale watching on the last frontier? Well you are thinking Alaska and Seattle.
Have you imagined going to a wall full of gum? Or have you imagined going whale watching on the last frontier? Well you are thinking Alaska and Seattle. “Coopers Pack Travel Guide to Alaska” and “Coopers Pack Travel Guide to Seattle” both have great descriptions and guides to the city.
First, we should talk about the Seattle travel guide. It was OK, but needed work on balancing out the details. Sometimes, they would provide a ton of info, other times they just said “see this” and continued on. However, it made good sense how it was but together. It began on the coast and went inwards. This act made it easier to understand.
Now comes the Alaska travel guide. It was better I thought then the Seattle guide and was more balanced on the details. It mentions a lot about whale watching, glaciers, and totem poles. It does only mention about Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan, which could upset readers if they are looking for Denali information. Like the other travel guide, it made sense the way the author organized it.
The books have enough information for three days in the city. They just needed a little bit more work on details. What makes the travel guides kid friendly is the fact they mention a dog named Cooper, and one of his friends(an animal) doing the adventure.
Overall, I could see a kid reading the Coopers Pack Travel Guides when their parents are talking about a family vacation. The books are good for kids in grades 2-5.
