3.0 out of 5 stars A good continental trip, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Snail's Pace: A Family's Journey by Barge to Europe (Kindle Edition)
This is the second book I have read about people travelling along canals, This is a good read, could have been enhanced by more maps, as not knowing the continent I found it difficult to visualise where they were. A good mix of descriptions of towns, their history and local wildlife flora and the people they met. Lots of mention of the children's lessons, but not their content, which would have been interesting as to how they included their travels in their work.
It is a little repetitive in places, but I still want to finish the book. If you like books about inland water way travel, have a read

Its quite a while ago now, Josh and Rosie have both grown up, gone through university and now established themselves in their own careers, but from memory we had daily maths and reading/writing then a project that was spurred from something we were doing on our travels. I remember the compass making Josh and Rosie did with a magnetised pin that echoed our own need to swing the compass on the boat before we set off. We visited sites, museums and zoos and answered the children's questions about these, discussing their thoughts and encouraging their natural curiosity. We enjoyed exploring and finding about the natural world. Cooking and baking gave us the chance for additional maths and chemistry understanding. We looked at the maps together which would have helped them to understand the geography of our journey. It was a joy to have the opportunity to spend such time with our young children and to enjoy the world through their eyes!
