There’s a map of the world to mark where you travel, along with a list of countries to tick off places you’ve been or want to visit. A double page spread of greetings in different languages is a fun conversation starter, too.
Prompts to draw your own map and flag are included with activities related to coins (try a coin rubbing) and stamps (use the sample stamps from around the world as inspiration to design your own). There’s also information to help with plane spotting, and drawing, as well as cloud spotting (learn to recognise cumulus, altostratus and cirrus clouds and others) and time zones.
Right at the back, in a tiny pocket on the inside back cover, is an even smaller passport - presumably for a child to pretend it’s for one of their toys. It’s complete with the same coat of arms featuring a cat and “Roam Free” motto
Passport is an opportunity to explain what’s involved when travelling internationally, but more than that, there’s plenty to keep children occupied and engaged on a family holiday.
