Phoenix Voyage is a project that unites people in their effort to make changes and helps to create a truly working mechanism that aims to overcome world crises in all possible spheres of our life. It has long been known that to attract attention to the problem, it is necessary to stir up interest in it, to motivate people thus galvanizing them into action. I think Phoenix Voyage copes with this problem in the most perfect and amazing way!
Phoenix Voyage Mascot eBook “Meet the Voyagers” is a great part of this project. Though it is aimed at kids, I also think it is aimed at the kid in everybody! This is fun for the whole family, indeed.
My niece was so impressed with the book (and so was I, by the way). She really wanted to spend more time with her favorite character, Giorgio, the painter, since she is so fond of painting herself! Lucky for her, there is a BONUS at the very end! 8 coloring book pages to enjoy! Frieburd’s flowers, drumming voyagers, dancing Gibby and whatnot! Your kids can experiment - coloring the same pictures differently, observing how this changes the mood of the picture and the way we perceive it. These pages, in an easy and entertaining form, will teach a child to distinguish colors and their shades, select the appropriate color schemes and to develop creative thinking.
Thankfully, there were plenty of different related activities on the Phoenix Voyage project site: additional information on mascots, cool facts and quizzes, and our favorites - printable voyager puzzles of all kinds!
I would highly recommend this book to everyone; it is funny, but also highly thought provoking and really useful.
