Gondola Boats

When we read the book Papa Piccolo by Carol Talley as part of the Five in a Row curriculum, I figured gondola boats were a thing of the past. Well they're not. In Venice, Italy tourists love taking rides in gondola boats. We saw lots of them. I would highly recommend this cute children's book to anyone with little ones.

  1. Papa Piccolo is one of our favorites! It was fun to be able to reference it this week as we learned about Marco Polo!

  2. I haven't heard of this book before. It sounds wonderful. JDaniel saw gondolas in a book and was asking about them. I will have to look for this book.

    Thank your for linking to Read.Explore.Learn. I will be sharing this post on the Read.Explore.Learn. Facebook page today.

    1. I read it with my son a few years ago when we were doing Five in a Row and then revisited it with my youngest child. I think we did activities like finding Italy on the map.

      Anyway, it should be easy to find. Even our small library on the air force base here in Germany has it.

  3. How fun! I've never read the book, but have heard of it from FIAR friends. Thanks for sharing!
