Taking young readers on an adventure through ten different countries, this book also introduces children to maps and entertains them with rhyme along the way. Although these students may not be able to travel the world at this moment, it shows them about different cultures.

At the end of the story a list showing all of Granny's souvenirs and the number that she bought is provided.

As it says in the title it is written in rhyme and every place she visits she picks up a certain amount of objects (one more than the previous place) therefore is a counting book also.

I like that some cultural elements are explained- for example, the names of the cats Granny gets in Thailand, Puyin and Puchai, are the Thai words for "little girl" and "little boy".

Reading this book, I actually learned about different cultures and things that went along with them. The illustrations reveal traditional dress and environments including Australia and Switzerland… An entertaining story, while revealing a captivating illustration on each page of the very finest quality.
