Off We Go to Mexico is best for young kids (age 2-5) who aren't expecting a storyline, but will enjoy this book's detailed, colorful pictures and lilting rhyme. Off We Go to Mexico gives a nice overview of Mexican culture the way a child might experience it. If your child is learning Spanish, translated words and phrases, included in each two page spread, could be a great conversation starter, and if a trip to Mexico is the first time your child will be encountering a foreign language they'd be a great opportunity to discuss how that works.

If you're headed to Mexico, the simplified match at the end of the book would be a great way to point out where you're headed without getting drawn into the details of roadways and geographic features.
