Let's Go See | Children's Book & App Review

[AD/Gifted - We received copies of the books for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

A few weeks ago, E got a really exciting parcel in the post - a selection of books from Let's Go See!

Let's Go See was created by commercial airline pilot Rob Johnson and developed in conjunction with EYFS consultants. 

We received five books in the series:

  • Pilot Ollie & Pilot Polly's Amazing Adventures - London
  • Pilot Ollie & Pilot Polly's Amazing Adventures - Madrid
  • Pilot Ollie & Pilot Polly's Amazing Adventures - Rome 
  • Egypt: A Pilot Polly and Pilot Ollie Adventure
  • Pilot Ollie & Pilot Polly's Guide To The Airport
E, at the grand age of six, has unfortunately never been on a plane before. In recent months she has been asking if we can go on holiday somewhere but obviously, due to global pandemic reasons, it isn't possible.

These books have been fantastic to bring her into other worlds while we can't leave the country. The Guide To The Airport is brilliant for teaching little ones about what the airport is like and the 'Adventures In...' books are filled with beautifully imagery relating to the countries as well cultural elements and even pronunciation of languages spoken there.

After reading these, E's list of where she wants to go has gotten even longer! We loved that the books are inclusive too. Did you know that less than 2% of captains are female?

The stories of Captain Rob Johnson's travels have even been made into animations which can be found on YouTube.

The fun doesn't end there! Let's Go See have developed a mobile app using augmented reality to help bring the books to life.

Within the app, you can select a country and see the landmarks pop up in your very own living room! There is a little cost for a few of the countries but it really is a lot of fun.

Children can even have a go playing some games, doing puzzles, flying a jet and much more!

We have loved taking a look at the Let's Go See range and it is perfect for children to learn more about the world around them and what it is like to be a pilot.

You can download the Let's Go See app from the Google Play Store or App Store.
