    One thought on “A Passport to Pastries”

    1. Phoebe has been invited, with her family, to go to Paris to celebrate her friend Camille's birthday. She's very excited, because she is looking forward to all of the good food, and wants to see the Eiffel Tower.

I think I can safely recommend the series to our kiddos.
