Book Month: This is Paris.

This is Paris. After a three-week vacation in Paris M. Sasek was inspired to write travel books for children. This wonderfully illustrated book is like taking a delightful tour of Paris in the 1950's from a child's eye view. Don't forget London and New York! This truly classic series of children's books has been re-issued by Universe. And if you find yourself reading some outdated facts just head to the back of these new editions to find some updated ones (where applicable). All the vibrancy and detail have been preserved from M. Sasek's original vision.

These books make a charming gift with lots of nostalgic appeal while inspiring the littlest of travellers. And if you're a parent who read these when you were young (like me!), you will be transported back in time. Give the gift of words during Hip Baby's January Book Month! Buy the first book, get the second book (of lesser value) at 25% off. This offer is only available in our stores.
