Beautifully illustrated, this large board book brings Mexico to life. Vivid illustrations in Tiny Travelers Mexico Treasure Quest expose young readers to the sights, sounds and flavors of this Spanish-speaking country. Kids will learn all about Mexico, including traditional Mexican foods -- tacos, tortas, and tamales. They'll experience an Alebrijes Parade and learn about the imaginary creatures made of papier-mache or wood. Each page presents fun facts and hidden objects to find. Readers visit places of interest, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Michoacan -- where they see a traditional Day of the Dead celebration. Part scavenger hunt, this colorful search-and- find book takes kids on a journey to better understand the customs, traditions, and history of a far away land. The can even explore the jungles of Chiapas to discover the animals that live among the ruins of Yaxchilan, an ancient Maya City. This is a wonderful book to share with young kids -- to broaden their horizons and discover new places of interest!

The back of the book includes a brief letter reminding readers to go back and check that they've found all the hidden treasures. A Tiny Travelers Treasure Quest Mexico Checklist is included. Kids check off stamp-like images featuring illustrations of items found in the book -- alebrije, molcajete, axolotl, and jaguar, just to name a few.
