Children's Books Inspired by Sicily
Children's books are wonderful for helping your child prepare for a trip. They can be enjoyed while on vacation and help them to process the sites they saw after returning home. By introducing them to Italy through Italian language and Italian inspired stories you can bring to life and give meaning to the places they see while abroad. Enriching their experience and building lifelong memories.
The Island of Sicily is home to diverse landscapes including stunning beaches making it a wonderful beach vacation destination. It is debated where the birthplace of gelato is but many agree Sicily was where sorbetto was first created. Children will enjoy visiting gelaterias to discover the difference between gelato, sorbetto and granita, all frozen sweet treats enjoyed especially in Sicily and throughout Italy.
