By Coreena TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2012
Format: Hardcover
I read this book with my kids and they really enjoyed it, both the cute story and the wonderful illustrations.

I love Isabella's imagination and how she travels the world in her own back yard, for instance her fence become the Great Wall of China, and her sandbox the desert and pyramids in Egypt. At the end of the book, there is an information section where each of these places is described, and there are and web sites to look up. This is a great connection to have.

There is a nice structure to the book, the kind that kids love, where Isabella is in one place, her dad starts to play along, then she goes to another place. The story gets that predictable, unpredictable feel, where it is predictable that she will fool her father, but unpredictable where she will go next.

The illustrations are engaging, simple and colourful, the kind that really draw young readers in, transforming Isabella's back yard into the landmark places around the world.

This is a fun book that kids are sure to want to read over and over again - and it might even get them interested in explorations of their own.

An incredibly engaging story for young readers June 24 2012
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Isabella's grand imagination makes for an incredibly engaging story that will take readers all over the world. With each occupation Isabella pretends she has, it takes her to some where new. From being a Warrior and protecting her people at the Great Wall of China to being an Archeologist and searching the pyramids, to pretending to be an astronomer atop a Mayan temple, Isabella's vast imagination teaches children about various occupations while giving them a taste of various places around the world were these jobs can be found.

The way in which this story is told is brilliant. While she's outside playing, Isabella's father asks her to help with a project, to which she replies she can't, because she's not that certain occupation. For example, her father says,

"Then who is going to help me today?" asked the father.

"I am an Archeologist, searching the hottest, driest desert for the tomb of a king."

"Well, Isabella, I think you will discover that your mummy gave us plenty to do today."

I loved the fact that one, Isabella's father plays a big role in the story, and two, he allows her to pretend to be whomever she wants. While he continues with his various projects outside, he continues to engage with her and her imagination, and supports her in allowing her to play and pretend. I loved it. The cutest part of the entire story was of course at the end of the book after Isabella has traveled all over the world, she walks hand in hand with her dad into the house and tells him what her favorite place. I'm thrilled that a father/daughter relationship was explored like this one was.

I loved this book and I highly recommend picking it! Not only is the story adorable, the illustrations are fabulous and match this story perfectly. I liked that Jennifer adds in some extras at the end of the book. She included a photo of each place Isabella imagines she visits, and some snippets about each place. After reading about the place Isabella visits, kids will get a to learn a little about each place. That's a win, win for teachers, parents and kids.

I bought this author's books for myself and my granddaughter's teacher as a gift for end of the year. She has 2 other stories by this same author. I have read these books to my granddaughter whose name is Isabella. I like the little girl going around the world to famous places. At the end of the book, the author gives info on the places.
