Volume 3. Alaskan Cruise, 46 pages, 38 pictures. The Chispita books are written on the premise that an adult reader can use the experiences of Pita to teach and enhance the life experiences of a growing child as well as the fun of games, puzzles and adventures that the world has to offer. Volume three "Alaskan Cruise" finds Chispita taking her Pita Kid's on an adventure cruise from Vancouver Canada to Alaska, but the story does not begin here. No! First we must learn again about Pita the working dog and understand the duties required by this amazing animal. A Pita game called "Circle, Triangle and Square where is your home" entertains the reader as the anticipation grows for the Bon Voyage party, of course little Chispita would not miss a opportunity to use this game for a language lesson, but the cruise awaits. Seven days aboard ship will give the Pita Kid's time to learn about Boats/Ships, Orcas, singing whales and also gravy boats, as they explore Ketchikan, with its Misty Fjords, Pita pillar and float plane adventure. Juneau gives us the Mendenhall glacier by dog sleigh, the brass dog story and Dutch night fun as well as an exciting helicopter ride. A ship race will push us further north to the town of Skagway, punctuated by a history lesson of the eighteen nineties gold rush days. A train ride to Chilkoot pass begins with a chug-chug-chug and a whooo-whooo-whoooo but makes little Pita think she has gone blind. Returning to Skagway! Strange images will intrigue Chispita's Kid's and the formal night dinner party makes Pita sparkle in her Diamonds. The voyage on north thought Glacier Bay to Seward Alaska only adds to this adventure of a lifetime, all punctuated by graphic photos, "enjoy."
