Little James' Big Adventures

Creating worldly kids!

Little James' Big Adventures - Italy

Little James and Susie travel to Europe to visit the country of Italy. The Globe lands them right in the center of an Italian family's meal. In fact, James and Susie fall right into their big bowl of spaghetti carbonara! The family is warm and hospitable and welcomes James and Susie into their home to share the pasta. They become friends with the little boy Tomoso and he shows them around Rome. They see historic landmarks like the colosseum and learn about what it was used for. When they leave Rome they visit the Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s famous artwork. They also visit the city of Pisa to see the leaning tower and take a gondola ride through Venice. Before they leave they make sure to have pizza in Naples and some gelato before heading back home. They also learn lots of fun phrases and words in Italian.


Apart from hopping on a plane, the best way for children to learn about the world is through reading—and travel books for children are some of the most touching, open-minded works available. If you are unable to risk travel in the interim, we have a fantastic alternative that will be both enjoyable and educational.

These rhyming books have fun facts sprinkled throughout for extra learning.


Janine lived overseas for several years and always appreciated the fun differences between her home country, the U.S., and the rest of the world. She created the Little James' Big Adventures series to encourage a global mindset in young children and cultivate an appreciation for other cultures. As a mother, she believes it is important for our kids to be worldly. These books give your child the experience and knowledge of traveling abroad, all from home with characters they'll grow to love.
