Molly and the Magic Suitcase: Molly Goes to Rio de Janeiro (Volume 10) by Chris Oler is a delightful, educational, and informative storybook for kids that will take them on a journey along with Molly and Michael to Rio de Janeiro. Molly and Michael love travelling and seeing new places, and they have a magic suitcase which takes them instantly to the place they want to visit. In this story, they are all set to explore Rio de Janeiro with the help of Livia, and tell readers about the culture, food, people, and places of interest in Rio de Janeiro.

This book, like the rest of the series, is educational and encourages readers to travel and discover new things, and will instill a liking in them to explore new places. The illustrations are adorable and colorful, and they capture the essence and spirit of the place beautifully. Readers learn about the music, food, and language of the place, and also about Sugarloaf Mountain, the Botanical Gardens, the amazing views from Corcovado, and the beaches. All school libraries and public libraries should have this book because it is educational and gives information about Rio de Janeiro in the simplest way.

It's a good bedtime storybook and is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Books like these are good for children to understand and gain knowledge when explained with the help of a story or a concept or with colorful pictures, just like this book does.
