" Mission New York: A scavenger Hunt is a fantastic approach to educating kids about NYC's art, culture, history, landmarks and more. I work in education and am a big advocate for experiential learning to keep kids motivated and engaged. This book is full of so much info in a really fun context that kids can relate to in so many of ways (visual, via web, exploring the sights, treasure hunting). I really loved Mission New York and will definitely use it with my kids and students! " said.

"I was very happy to see a Mission held in the city I grew up in!
As in her other Mission books the author makes visiting a city with children a real learning as well as fun experience
In order to gain points for meriting a Secret Agent certificate, it is recommended that the participants, “play tourist” so that that they can gather information while blending in with the surroundings. The many activities are creative and keep the promising Secret Agent on his toes.
I have always adored the Metropolitan Museum of Art and so I found it really wonderful for having the agents search out certain famous paintings. But not only. They are told to give a critical eye on these works and even compare them. This to me is a fantastic method for having young people use their intelligence and their capacity to express their opinions. It’s a learning tool they will be helpful all through their schooling.
Discovering that there actually existed a “James Bond” and finding out his name (William Stephenson), was probably a surprise to many. His nickname was Intrepid which shows he was considered fearless and this was exactly why Iam Fleming chose him to create James Bond!
Children of all ages will enjoy this book as it takes them to places that stimulate their imagination and leaves them will many happy memories of a trip they will surely never forget.

""There's no destination. The journey is all that there is, and it can be very, very joyful." - S. Rao

Catherine Aragon is inveterate traveler and obviously loves exploring every city she visits intensely to discover ALL of the secrets and sights she can possible uncover. Now she has created a series of book that make traveling a game of thrills and learning for youngsters (an oldsters new to that destination) - and a learning experience at the same time. The Scavenger Hunt Adventure series takes young travelers through the famous sights of cities, engaging them with exciting scavenger hunt activities as you discover city landmarks together. She adds an element of intrigue and mystery and detective work that children will love.

She opens with a document from the SIA (Secret International Agency) that secretly collects intelligence in all corners of the globe and this is an announcement that you the reader have been selected as a Special Agent. All is arranged in a task force/training environment for fun, but the fun comes with seeing the sights and learning about them. Sheets with questions and points for answering the questions correctly are part of the packet. Photographs supplied are splendid - many few of us have ever seen!

Briefly the New York Mission consists of a Pre-Arrival Brief and then goes on to explore all aspects of the Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Metropolitan Museum of Art. Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal. Empire State vs Top of the Rock, Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of liberty, Ellis Island Museum, Sights of NYC (including foods and funky places and people), and Anytime Missions.

This is one great idea for learning about other places and a travel guide children will love. Highly Recommended.
