Flowerpot Childrens Press
Beauregard has always had big dreams. He wants to travel the world and see all the sites, but how could he possibly go around the globe if he is too scared to fly? With the help of one cardboard box and some amazing new friends, Beauregard goes on the adventure of a lifetime and realizes he is actually pretty brave after all! Includes brightly illustrated maps with geographic, animal, and cultural information (plus famous landmarks) and is a great storybook for visual learners.
