This book written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, is a little bit different. Yes, it is a travel book in the sense that it shows you some of the fun things you can do and see, but it is also two other things. It’s a book about getting homesick, and it is a book that repeats phrases and uses rhyme and word recognition so you can learn to read and shout out what is coming next in the rhyme. Dyan and Weigand want you to go ahead and have some fun and at the same time learn as you explore the town of Regensburg, Germany through the words of Penelope Dyan and the camera lens of John D. Weigand. Yes, learn all you can about this little city along the great River Danube, but also remember it is just as important sometimes to set aside the museums and all the facts about what happened where and when, and to just remember to be a kid! Dyan sees through the eyes of a child and writes what she feels about a place, and what she sees. This always makes her books very different, educational, interesting and fun.

14. Over A Bridge! A Kid's Guide To Budapest, Hungary - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 8.60  - Click book title for availability and further details

The name "Budapest" came from combining the names of two cities, "Buda" and "Pest." Originally, there were two separate cities. Today they are connected by eight bridges crossing the Danube. The two cities became one city, a single city, in 1873. According to chronicles of the Middle Ages the name "Buda" came from its founder, Bleda (or Buda) the brother of Attila the Hun. There are several theories about the origin of the name "Pest." One of these theories believes the word "Pest," came from the Roman times, since there was a fortress "Contra-Aquincum" in this region called "Pession." Others think the name "Pest" came from the Slavic word for cave "??????, peshtera," or from the word for oven "???, pesht." Budapest began as a Celtic settlement that became the Roman capital of Lower Pannonia. Hungarians arrived in the 9th century. Their first settlement was pillaged by the Mongols in 1241-42.The re-established town became one of the centers of Renaissance humanist culture in the 15th century. Following the Battle of Mohács and after nearly 150 years of Ottoman rule, the region entered an age of prosperity in the 18th and 19th centuries. Budapest became a global city after its 1837 unification. It also became the second capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a great power that dissolved in 1918, after World War I. Since that time, there was revolution and more war. Budapest was a part of the USSR until its break-up and the fall of the Berlin Wall. This book contains a smattering of what you can see and do in Budapest, but not everything. Photographer John D. Weigand and award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan, traveled there in winter, just before the snow; and were so entranced, they vowed someday to return in the summer and spring. The city of Budapest is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and there is plenty for a kid to do and see! Dyan and Weigand look at a place through the eyes of a young child to give them a glimpse of what they might see and to let them know, sometimes the world is not such a big place, after all!

17. Oh Vienna! a Kid's Guide to Vienna, Austria - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 8.60  - Click book title for availability and further details

Vienna, the largest city in Austria, is its capitol. It is known as the city of music because of its musical roots, and it is also known as the city of dreams because it was home to the world’s first psycho-analyst, Sigmund Freud. The roots of the city lie in early Celtic and Roman settlements that created a Medieval, Baroque city. Photographer John D. Weigand and award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan visited Vienna just before Christmas and saw many things that would delight a child. Dyan believes the key to traveling well with a child, especially a young one, is to not put them into overload. “If you do that,” Dyan says, “then all you will end up with are complaints of tummy aches and hurting feet.” The trick here is to let the child absorb, because a child is like a sponge. Let them look at pictures and then just watch and see what he or she sees. Museums are soon forgotten, and what is remembered is what they saw as only they can see. Dyan asked a well traveled young Italian child in Spain what he liked to do when he traveled, and he simply answered, “Go to playgrounds and parks.” According to Dyan, if you want to see with a child’s eyes, ask a child what they see! This is how Dyan sees through the eyes of a child. There is also a video on the Bellissimavideo YouTube Channel that goes along with this book!
