With a Magical Crystal Globe, where would you go?
A group of friends from a small Florida town set off on an adventure to New York, using their imaginations and Mrs. Eva’s Magic Crystal Globe. “Close your eyes …” she says.
Poof! The Young World Travelers are in Queens, New York, for their first Magical Crystal Globe adventure, where they visit famous sites, such as the Queens County Farm, a civil war fort, and Flushing Meadows, the site of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs!
They ride a train, a covered wagon, and a classic car to their various destinations, sometimes even dressed in the clothing of the times! Suddenly faraway places are not so far, and history meets the present in a colorful display of imagination.
Will you become a Young World Traveler too?
Young World Travelers and the Magical Crystal Globe is 45 pages of history and vibrant premium color images, all wrapped up in an 8×10 glossy hardback cover.
