Description

Inspire children to fall in love with the world they live in with Tiny Travelers!

The Tiny Travelers “Treasure Quest” Series takes its readers on a fun-filled journey to discover what makes each country special with search-and-find features on every spread.

In Tiny Travelers Puerto Rico Treasure Quest, readers journey from the historical city of San Juan with its famous "El Morro" fort, to the beautiful bioluminescent bay in Vieques. Tiny Travelers will enjoy getting closer to Puerto Rican culture, and seeing why it is called “La Isla del Encanto” (the island of enchantment).

Each illustrated spread invites children to discover hidden "treasures" - icons, animals, statues, instruments and more - that make up the rich cultural heritage of Puerto Rico.

“Most kids today are told that it’s a small world, when in fact it’s a really big world,” says Encantos CEO and Tiny Travelers creator and author Steven Wolfe Pereira. “And because the world is so big, there are many countries, cities, and cultures that have yet to be discovered and explored by kids. We created Tiny Travelers to foster curiosity, empathy, and understanding by learning what makes people and places so special.”

"I am ashamed to admit that I was not aware that Puerto Rico had been a part of the US for more than 100 years...I love the photos, I love the information, and I love the Spanish that is scattered throughout. The pictures are engaging, and the hunt for the different items is fun. I imagine that having the stamps to put in would bring the children a lot of joy as they find whatever they are searching for. I highly recommend this book for early elementary students to provide a fun introduction to Puerto Rico." —Dana Goodman, Educator
