“I really enjoyed reading Molly and Michael’s adventures in Rome, and I think any child K through Third Grade would enjoy it much more than me! The story is fun, interesting, and enjoyable.

“Exploring the world and expanding a child’s horizons are the focus of these books. From historical cities to local foods, customs, and languages, geography becomes a magical learning ride with the easy text and colorful illustrations. What I love most about this book: It’s short and sweet, written in a conversational tone that gets to the point and keeps it interesting. Having been both to Rome and Barcelona, I appreciate the care the author and illustrator took in maintaining the authenticity of their beautiful landmarks.”

Molly Goes to Barcelona is a very well illustrated and well-written children’s book. The dialogue was very easy to follow, and children should have no trouble reading it on their own. Overall, an amazing depiction of Barcelona paired with targeted writing and illustration for children!” –Jenell Diegor for Inkspand

“[Molly Goes to Shanghai] is a really wonderful book for little kids. Kids are always curious about things around them and ask questions. Kids are smart, and picky about what they read. This kind of book helps to teach them interactively. Many writers want to give kid a moral story and teach a lesson, but those aren’t popular with children. The author of this book Chris Oler knows the secret: it’s not fun to be lectured. The three characters are nicely portrayed and kids can connect to them quickly.” —James Verne for Inkspand

“Molly and the Magic Suitcase is a great read for young children. Visually, it is stunning but more importantly, it imparts knowledge to the child in an absorbing way. By putting Molly as the person asking the questions, there is nothing obvious about the learning here – and this is the true beauty of the book. The whole story is a fantastic mix of learning and enjoyment and a perfect addition for any child’s bookcase.” –Steven Smith for Inkspand

My 6 year old has read [Molly Goes to Peru] multiple times in the first day of having it. The pictures are amazing and the stories rich with factual
information about Peruvian history, geography and culture. We can’t wait to get the other books!” —Parent comment on Facebook

Molly and the Magic Suitcase: Molly goes to Sydney is a wonderful story that will encourage kids to use their imagination to explore the world. Chris Oler does a fantastic job providing the reader with just enough great information about Australia. I’m an adult and I did not know “the lyrebird can imitate chainsaws, dogs and horns. Amy Houston Oler’s illustrations are nice and playful. I recommend this book to all the young and old explorers out there. I look forward to reading more of Oler’s “Molly and the Magic Suitcase” series.” —5-Star Amazon Customer Review
