In Exploring Paris by Douglas Fehlen, we are introduced to the sights and sounds of one of Europe’s most popular cities. We learn many facts about the gorgeous city of lights. That it’s located on the Seine River; that over the centuries it had been taken over by various groups of people, with the final occupation ending in 1944 when it was liberated from Nazi control. Paris is the eighth-largest city in the world and attracts tourists from every corner. It’s a very expensive city to live in and most of the people in Paris don’t own their own homes but rent. We learn the French city is also known as the fashion center of the world, being home to some of the greatest designer houses such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. Twice a year Paris holds a fashion week in which anyone who is anybody is there to see the latest trends and fashion.

I think Douglas Fehlen did an excellent job with this informative book on Paris. It follows through like a travel guide and is simple but also packed with information and facts that most people wouldn’t think too much on. Despite being a book that was written for children, adults can also get great use out of it as well. Whether it’s reading for fun, researching for an upcoming trip, or to teach your young one about the fashion capital of the world, Explore Paris delivers in a way that is enjoyable for readers of all ages.
