Enhance your experience with the book Vendela in Venice (or other books set in Venice):
- Check out family travel tips for Italy, which includes some ideas for Venice. (I will be adding a post specific to Venice and will link it there when it’s published.)
- The Greetings from Somewhere series has a stop in Venice in the book the Mystery of the Mosaic. The series is a chapter book with limited illustrations. So using the images from Vendela in Venice can help kids appreciate the Mystery of the Mosaic that much more.
- Compare past and present with the book I, Vivaldi. I picked up this book a long time ago and was happy to have it to look through when we got back from our trip. It is filled with illustrations of Venice during Vivaldi’s time there, in the late 1600s and early 1700s. One thing I found interesting was how much was still so similar. Same buildings. Same canals. I think it would be fun to compare the illustrations in the two books to see what has changed.
- Listen to Vivaldi’s famous Four Seasons Symphony. This link takes you to Amazon where you have the choice of listening for free if you have Amazon Prime, downloading an MP3, or purchasing the album.
