Jesse and the Seven Wonders of the World by Herbert F. Hopkins
"Jesse and the Seven Wonders of the World" is a charming and beautifully illustrated story book about a girl/boy (reader's choice) who travels to the Seven Wonders of the World. It is also a travel book, maybe your child's first, where learning about distant lands is both interesting and fun.
This story is also a mystery, a mystery with an important life lesson, and it is Jesse and the loveable one-eyed dog who are bent on solving it. Along the way, they run into a few problems, like Mount Everest and Buster Stone, but their resilience remains strong. Maybe you can solve the mystery before our heroes do. That would be really cool, and the wonder crown would be yours.
