Thoughts: **I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.**
Maya, Filippo, their parents, and their cat Otello live on a cruise ship called the Fun Princess. This is the story of their trip to Alaska, and visit to a glacier.
Lots of good information provided in a fun way for young children. Every page has bright colorful illustrations to keep their attention as well. There is also a short quiz at the end of the book to promote comprehension, as well as some additional facts to encourage further learning.
Looking forward to reading this to my grandson next time he visits!
My rating: Four stars
