    1. Alyce’s Thoughts (7 years old):I think the whole book was a pretty good book. I would spend time reading it to other people like my little brother Nano (4 years old) and if I had more time before I go to bed, I could read it to you and Kat (10 years old).There is lots of pictures that I like and they use thinking bubbles and exclamation points and question marks and periods and a couple of other things I don’t know the names to. Some of the pictures have lots and lots of colors.My favorite p [...]

    2. Traveling the world with Maya & Filippo is fun and educational! Valuable lessons taught as the siblings hop on and off the explorer bus, and how a change in attitude makes a big difference!My little niece found this delightful book by Alinka Rutkowska so interesting that she decided to do her own research on Auckland. Some interesting facts: 1.5 million people in Auckland, New Zealand, breathtaking beaches, lots of shopping places and she thought it was amazing that everyone in Auckland live [...]

    4. review also at booknerdloleotodoReceived from author for an honest review.I loved this book for many reasons: 1) It is a great book for both boys and girls. As a mother of a boy and a girl I’m constantly on the lookout for both boy and girl friendly books. 2) I love that it takes place in Auckland! Great opportunity for students to learn about New Zealand 3) I love the lesson about attitude! Both Maya and Filippo attracted negative people to them when they were negative and positive people to [...]

    5. A wonderful story with moral lessons I was offered the book to write a review. And here it is.Filippo and Maya were complaining a lot, but they learnt their lesson quite quick. Complaining dose not getting him what he wants. He argued : Maybe if we stop complaining and start being happy, we will meet happy people instead of complainers?They started to be happy, thinking of happy things, like chocolate.And exactly that was happening. They met a lovely couple In Auckland. They showed them around a [...]

    6. Imagine living on a cruise ship with your family. That is exactly how Maya and Filippo, their parents, and cat Otello live. They cruise to New Zealand and their parents encourage them to get off the boat and go exploring. They get on a bus and realize they can’t see over the people in front of them. They become cranky and the people around them are cranky. Next a young couple get on board. The children learn a valuable lesson about how attitude affects them and those around them.

    7. I am becoming very fond of the "Maya and Filippo" books. I read one about them yesterday, and today I read this one. I like how each story has a lesson at the end, and shows how the children are able to understand the lesson on their own. These books would be excellent for children, by showing them a lesson and letting them have fun along the way.

    8. A Positive Message Wrapped up in a Trip!There's a lot that kids will enjoy about this fun story. The child-like illustrations are vibrant and appealing, the positive take-away doesn't sound preachy, and they'll learn a bit about geography too.I have an inkling that children will love to travel the world with Maya & Filippo in Ms. Rutkowska's series of children's books.

    9. Great children's read about how your attitude and outlook can affect your day. The sadder you are, the more you are likely to attract sad people near you. The happier you are, the more likely you are to have happy people near you. Climb aboard the Fun Princess and enjoy your day.

    10. Maya & Filippo are two kiddos who live on a cruise ship where they have unlimited chocolate everyday and even in their cereal for breakfast! When they wake up and find there isn't any chocolate to be found - because they ate it all - they start crying and complaining and then their mother encourages to visit Auckland and learn about the city. Along the way through the experiences they have that day they discover that when they are complaining others complain and when they have a bad attitude [...]

    12. This is a Reading Good Books review.Isn’t it just the cutest thing? :) I would have loved a physical copy of this.

    14. Unfortunately, we had the ebook version of this book, and I wouldn’t be too happy if my kids took their crayons to my Kindle. But, it is still a super cute read that we all enjoyed very much! Maya and Filippo have such fun adventures, and there’s always a nice little lesson tucked in along the way. This is one of those books my kids enjoy reading over and over—good for car rides and last minute bedtime stories! I’d love to have the print version so they could go crazy coloring Maya and F [...]

    15. This book just doesn't make sense. I know it's a children's book but it was incoherent at times. Filippo's ever changing mood and thoughts were disconcerting. One moment he was crying then later he's laughing. They were talking about aliens and then Filippo will change the topic to chocolates without any segue at all. They visit Auckland but we don't really see Auckland just Filippo whining and then laughing the next. This was a confusing book and a bit wordy too.

    16. Cute story about brother and sister cruising on a boat and visiting Auckland. They learned a good lesson or two.The idea of two little kids getting off a cruise ship and exploring new countries by themselves is terrible at the age I would not let my kids anywhere by themselves.I read the ebook and did not realize that kids could color in the book too. Its a big that you can read with children and than talk about it with them.I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.

    17. It wasn't one of my favorite books for children but it was cute. I especially liked the illustrations. The sailor on page 10 reminded me of Popeye. I also liked the message to be the kind of person that you yourself would want as a friend.
