I received an advance review book for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Maria Castellucci Moore and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

Paris is one of my favorite cities and I enjoyed learning about it through the eyes of the main character Vivienne.  What begins as any other Sunday ends with a lesson in embracing our senses to enjoy what our community has to offer.  Her first stop was to see her Papy encouraged. He encouraged her to go to her favorite places while taking the time to notice what her heart and body told her.

Off we went to explore Paris! I enjoyed riding alongside Vivienne as she visited her favorite places. Each place offered the chance to engage one of her senses and appreciate what they had to offer. It’s always fun to explore a city from someone else's POV and this book does not disappoint.

As someone who took French in high school, I appreciate the use of dual language throughout the book. The illustrations are gorgeous and did an excellent job of bringing the story to life.  I look forward to reading more from this author!
