Maya & Filippo Learn about Careers in Dunedin

Maya & Filippo Learn about Careers in Dunedin - Alinka Rutkowska, Konrad Checinski Maya and Filippo are a sister and brother pair who travel around the world with their parents and their cat Otello on the Fun Princess cruise ship. Today Maya and Filippo dock in Dunedin, New Zealand. Before they disembark, the youth club leader asks all the kids what they want to be when they grow up. Of course Filippo wants to work in a chocolate factory so he can eat all the chocolate, but Maya is undecided. After exploring Dunedin, Filippo changes his mind about his future career, while Maya discovers that it's all right to keep her options open.

This is another fun and informative offering from Alinka Rutkowska and illustrator Konrad Checinski. The illustrations and story are cute, but there are some problems with consistency in tense. It would have been nice if Maya and Filippo's "student friend " was given a name and if we heard a report back about what the other kids learned during their visit to Dunedin. The story is followed by a short quiz and facts about Dunedin, including information about Otago University and the Cadbury chocolate factory.

I received this book in return for an honest review.
