Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland

In this lavishly illustrated, multimedia, sight & sound ebook, seven-year-old Foster invites you to come along with him on a two-week romp through the mountains and valleys of the magnificent Swiss alps. He’ll show you some of the favorite places from his first trip (when he was three), then take you along to share in his new adventures.
So pack your bag, put on your travel shoes and prepare to

• Fly across the Atlantic to Zürich
• Take a room-by-room tour of a Swiss chalet, and watch the Alpen glow from its balcony
• Ride on trains, funiculars, cog railways, paddlewheel boats, buses, cablecars, gondolas, and even a dog sled on Europe’s longest glacier
• Watch fearless hang gliders and paragliders take off, soar through the air, and land
• Admire frozen sculptures in an ice palace
• Witness cows noisily parading in the high meadows
• Follow the intricate process of cheesemaking
• Marvel at plunging waterfalls
• Learn the rules of the road and drive a miniature car
• Say thank you in German, French and Italian
• Hike along lakes and through forests while searching for marmots and trolls
• Time travel in an outdoor museum with centuries-old homes, hand tools you can use, fragrant vegetable and herb gardens, and farm animals you can pet

All these are brought to life with over 200 pictures embedded in slideshows and photo galleries that you control, plus video clips that respond to your tap and engage your ears with the sounds of cowbells, bus horns, and steam engines.

Thanks to digital technology, Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland is the next best thing to actually being there. And when you do go, you’ll wish that Foster were at your side.

Customer Reviews

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland

I purchased Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland this past year because it appeared to be well written for children as well as adults. I was planning my own trip to Switzerland in September and wanted to share with my grandchildren the things I would see while traveling. I often read children’s books to obtain a general overview of subjects without going into great detail. I enjoyed traveling along with Foster and having new experiences on each page. The additional pages to click on to discover the videos and still photos of the cows, cheese making and transportation were fun to see and hear. I learned much from the book which I applied during my tour of Switzerland and highly recommend it for older elementary children to adults.

It's been a long time since I encountered a children's book that could also hold and adult's attention, trigger the imagination and astound with technological wizardry. Janet Dieman has pulled it off again with Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland. It's not really a book, you see. It's a packaged experience.

Seven year old Foster, wise beyond his years, is your tour guide and he will resonate not only with his youthful counterparts but also with the fun-loving youngsters still hidden inside most of us crusty adults. Let them out for a dazzling trip through the Swiss Alps. And don't be surprised if you develop a sudden urge to yodel.

Your attention will no doubt be divided between the actual content and the wonderful ways it's presented. A real extra that should send you scurrying for Janet's other offerings. Have a great trip!

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland

Grammy Takes Foster to Switzerland is a delightful book that describes a wonderful experience for Foster. As an adult I enjoyed the beautiful pictures and looked forward to seeing some of the same things on my Switzerland trip. After I returned home, it was so much fun to look at the book again and relive great memories of my trip.
