Early Review: Isabella - Girl on the Go by Jennifer Fosberry

Isabella's back, and her dreams are turning an ordinary backyard into an exciting adventure!
Jennifer Fosberry has created an inspiring follow-up to her New York Times bestselling series featuring everyone's favorite purple-haired, little girl. Previously, Isabella discovered her favorite heroes in My Name Is Not Isabella. Now she travels around the world experiencing its greatest wonders without ever leaving her own backyard.
Isabella, as precocious as ever, spends the day playing her dad as they discover some of the greatest places man has made around the world. She pretends everyday things (like the sandbox) are extraordinary places (like the desert and pyramids of Egypt). Isabella ends the day in her own home-sweet-home, the most wonderful place to be.

A back of the book "Places that Changed the World" section features descriptions of all the places Isabella visits. (Goodreads)


My Thought
Isabella: Girl on the Go is another good book for children. It has not only beautiful illustration but also nice story.

Isabella, a little cute girl who has a great Imagination is the main character. I liked her.  She does not need any sophisticated things to play. All simple things that she got around were more than enough. Look at how Paintbrush and a fence could make her become a warrior who built the longest and strongest wall in the world to protect her people. Or a flashlight that took her to New York and made her become the Lady Liberty, the defender of freedom.I liked all her journey. Her father was also nice. He's the one who prompted everything for her.

Another thing that I liked from this book was the few last pages. It revealed clearly about all places that mentioned in the previous pages. It also explained to the reader about some words that were said by Isabella. Totally complete - great book for children.  I think I am going to buy this kind of book for my future child.  

Before this one, Jenniffer Fosberry has written another book about Isabella. I wonder what she wrote about. I'd love to know what kind of adventure that Isabella have inside.

Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebook who has approved my request. I got this free Galley in exchange for an honest review.  

Cover and Illustration
I like the cover. It revealed what we're going to find inside. I love the illustration and its colors. I am going to put Mike Litwin as one of my favorite illustrators. He drew Isabella with very well
