Where in the World? with Secret of the Andes & A Giveaway


Our first ever book share with Poppins Book Nook takes us on a study of the Incas, llamas, and the Andes Mountains.

Where in the World?  



Secret of the Andes is about an Incan boy,Cusi, growing up in the Andes Mountains. He lives a solitary life with Chuto herding llamas in Hidden Valley. But things aren't as simple as they seem. He actually has a very large part to play in the traditions of his people if he is willing to give his life to the task. As a direct descendant to the rulers of the ancient Incans, his true identity is kept from him until the proper time comes. Cusi must decided if he will be guardian to the llamas and the hidden Incan treasures. We recommend the book for ages 10-14.

Here's our round up of crafts, activities, field trips, reading guides, lesson plans, maps, art, music, and fun to go along with Secret of the Andes.

I love this book and activity! My husband is Peruvian so it would be a heritage lesson too! I'm definitely pinning to do this with Chiquita. This post would be great for a link-up I cohost: http://toddlefast.blogspot.com/search/label/Creative%20Kids%20Culture%20Blog%20Hop

I'm so glad that you'll be able to use it. We'll be glad to link up with you! :)

Ashley said...

We will have to be on the lookout for this book! You have a great round up of activities to go with it too!

I've never seen this book, but we just finished taking a look at some of the Central and South American cultures, so this would be a good one to add to our book basket.

Bethany said...

We really like the 360 tour and of course our visit yo see llamas was awesome.

Bethany said...

This would go along wonderfully with your theme!

I'm adding this to our library list then will have to come back to go through your links with my kids when we read it. Thanks!

Bethany said...

What fun! If you blog about it, let us know.

I am going to add this to our reading list, it sounds like a great book, and your round up has so many fun activities! I seriously cannot resist bookmarking you so I can come back later and pick a few to try with my kids.
Thank you for helping to bring a spoonful of reading fun to the Poppins Book Nook this month!

Bethany said...

Great! It is a really great story and the round up is so much fun! Don't miss the llamas if you can find a farm, they are beautiful!

My children have loved llamas ever since they went to a llama farm a couple of years ago, and my Dad brought them back llama toys when he went on a mission trip to Peru. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to have to try this book with them!

Bethany said...

My kiddos are always asking to go visit the llamas. :)
