 INTRO:
(from Amazon)
 From dancing to white water rafting to camping on the beach, Queen Vernita does it all in Baja Quail in her latest travel adventures.
Adelanto, CA – In Queen Vernita Visits Baja Quail, the latest installment of Dawn Menge’s award-winning adventure book series, the well-traveled title character finds herself continuing her adventures with exciting and educational activities in Baja Quail – perhaps her most thrilling trip yet. The action/adventure children’s fiction is published by Outskirts Press.
Queen Vernita Visits Baja Quail begins with Queen Vernita ringing in the New Year by reflecting on past adventures and wondering where her travels will take her next. She doesn’t have to wait long to find out: Before the clock strikes midnight, she finds herself with a slew of invitations to visit the Land of Quail.
What comes next is a whirlwind of sun, sand and a flurry of fun adventures: She learns all about dolphins, where they live, eat and play; she experiences the habitat of the silvery grunion; she rides horseback in the mountains and rafting on the Rio Bravo Del Norte, where she delights in learning how the majestic river was formed. Along the way, Vernita learns surfing, rafting and the Spanish language, as well as the complexities of the local cultures, customs and cuisines.
Through Queen Vernita’s adventures, readers learn something new and fascinating every step of the way. The series fosters a love of learning and a curiosity about people, animals and the many natural wonders of our world. Educator and author Dawn Menge draws on experiences with her family, friends and students in creating a world of vibrant characters, many of whom overcome disabilities like blindness and cerebral palsy to live exciting, fulfilling lives.

REVIEW
Ms. Menge wrote another wonderful book in the Queen Vernita series.  The book is designed for the young readers in the middle to later elementary school.  It tells about different parts of Mexico around the Caribbean Sea. I loved that the book was divided into months. This way the reader can read a month at a time about Queen Vernita's journeys to different locations.  The book is a very good teaching book about people, their culture and the environment in which they live.  The author wrote a book about 12 journeys filled with adventure and lessons to be learned. Each journey is one in it's own.  The reader will learn so much without realizing it because they are enjoying what they are reading.  I would recommend this book to parents, children, grandparents, teachers and just anyone who loves learning while enjoying.  This book isn't just for middle schoolers.  It's for anyone. I also think the illustrations in the book were very colorful and interesting.  There's even a place for the young reader to write his or her name in the book making it theirs.  
I received a complimentary copy of  QUEEN VERNITA VISITS BAJA QUAIL from the author, Dawn Menge and OutSkirts Press for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
