What I loved: This is a fun board book for children who love trains, travel, and/or simple stories. The Little Engine and Bear make for adorable characters to follow on this trip through some of the highlights of California. I found the facts on each page to be really fascinating and learned some new things, as an adult about the state! The places they chose are some nice highlights of manmade and natural sights to see in California.
The illustrations have bright colors, cute characters, and great representation of the sights they see. Combined with the board book format and story, this will work well for toddlers and preschoolers.
Final verdict: A cute board book travel guide, WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA is a fun adventure for young readers to take through the state with the Little Engine and Bear.
