Description


Inspire children to fall in love with the world they live in with Tiny Travelers!

The Tiny Travelers “Treasure Quest” Series takes its readers on a fun-filled journey to discover what makes each country special with search-and-find features on every spread.

In Tiny Travelers Mexico Treasure Quest, readers journey from the mariachi-filled plazas, to the Pyramids of Teotihuacan. From the Lucha Libre ring, to the flower filled boats of Xochimilco, Tiny Travelers will enjoy getting closer to Mexican culture making magical discoveries along the way.
Each illustrated spread invites children to discover hidden "treasures" - icons, animals, statues, instruments and more - that make up the rich cultural heritage of Mexico.

“Most kids today are told that it’s a small world, when in fact it’s a really big world,” says Encantos CEO and Tiny Travelers creator and author Steven Wolfe Pereira. “And because the world is so big, there are many countries, cities, and cultures that have yet to be discovered and explored by kids. We created Tiny Travelers to foster curiosity, empathy, and understanding by learning what makes people and places so special.”

"A+ educational content….Wonderful... to share with young kids -- to broaden their horizons and discover new places of interest!” — Common Sense Media

“Purpose is at the core of the Tiny Travelers launch... The goal is to expose kids to the vastness and diversity of the world beyond their backyards, engendering empathy for different cultures, geographies and languages at a time when people all over the world are more connected than ever via digital platforms.”- Forbes

“The books are full of fun facts, hidden “easter eggs” , and rhyme-based storytelling. They’re infused with keywords from the featured country’s language, helping teach kids correct pronunciation and useful phrases for travel.” - Parentology

“Although both Mexico and Puerto Rico follow a formula in describing the places and cultures, there is little that is formulaic in the Tiny Traveler series. Rather, as these gorgeously illustrated board books introduce young people to each place and culture, they nurture a healthy curiosity and encourage youngsters to want to know more. As well, Mexican and Puerto Rican children will see themselves as belonging to a land that is part of their own rich heritage. This series is highly recommended.” —Rose Veda Berryessa, De Colores: The Raza Experience in Books for Children

"Another great book in the Tiny Travelers series. I am in love with these books, and this book on Mexico did not disappoint. I grew up in Southern Arizona and studied Mexico in school, as well as being surrounded by the culture in my day to day life. I struggle to explain many cultural aspects that I experienced as a kid that my children have never experienced. This book is an amazing introduction to Mexico, and I love that it shows a variety of the areas of the country, different architecture, and various cultural celebrations. I will be thrilled to read this with my elementary school children." —Dana Goodman, Educator
