" Another in the 'Babar traveling the world' series with a super sweet twist . . . Babar's daughter, Isabelle, is traveling to Paris for the first time, so Babar shares all his advice on how to see the city best . . . with the narrative ending with the heart-warming "See the great world and treasure every bit of it, darling child. But at the end of your journey, come back to your family in Celesteville and let us welcome you home." " said.

" can't device to keep this for myself, give it to one of my daughters (whom I have taken to Paris) or give it to my granddaughter who I would like to take to Paris " said.

" Like many of the newer Babar books, the story is not very engaging for children but really is more geared toward nostalgia. The pictures were, as always, light and fun. I especially liked seeing Babar and other elephants drinking wine. That's a rarity in picture books in my experience. Anyway, while Babar may have lost some of his French imperialistic instincts, his participation in the high culture of food, wine, and art is steady. " said.

" Not as charming as the originals, but also not racist like the originals. " said.

" Pretty spot on with its "How to be a real Parisian" instructions. It's a beautiful city, and deserves to be appreciated! Bonus points for the "Children learning anatomy from statues" bit. Nothing inappropriate in the illustration, but I think we all know what it means! " said.

" Babar's youngest daughter Isabelle is getting ready to go to Paris for the first time. Babar has been there many times. He describes for her many things to see and do in Paris from the café life, the brasseries, weather, clothing, and so on. There are many sights, but most important he tells her to enjoy Parisian life, but then "See the great world and treasure every bit of it...let us welcome you home." Cute story and introduction to Paris. " said.

"This is a cute little book for anyone planning a trip to Paris with their little ones. Although the named restaurants and cafes are quite pricey, the book does offer some insight into how to act like a Parisian in Paris. Sit around at the café all day and watch people pass by, enjoy the museums, visit the bookstores. There is no real story to follow and you could pretty much swap out Babar and his family for virtually any other character. It would have been nice to follow a narrative rather than a to-do list. " said.

" Babar shares his favorite spots around Paris with his youngest daughter. " said.
