Manzione, Lisa. Bella & Harry: Let's Visit Venice. 2011. Bella and Harry, LLC.
The book is about two chihuahuas that explore Venice, Italy. They visit historical landmarks, experience different customs, and live the culture. The author is informative, interactive, and enthusiastic and the illustrations are accurate, interesting, and fun to look at.
I love the Bella & Harry series! I would recommend using this in a first or second grade classroom. The information is subtly integrated into the story and learning is fun through Bella and Harry's adventure in Italy! It's a good introduction to Italian language and teaches geographical and historical contexts.
