Each and every one of these books are so great for kids! I love teaching my children about all the amazing places around the world and I want them to be eager to travel and discover as much as they can. Big Sis and Lil Sis at 7 and 4 think these are “awesome books.” Big Sis especially loves them and has now made a big list of places she wants to visit one day. I hope we can take her to Paris for her 13th birthday!
Interactive, engaging and educational, Lonely Planet Kids’ products aim to kick-start the travel bug in a whole new generation and show them how amazing and diverse our planet can be. These are especially great to slip into a backpack to keep kids busying during all that summer travel.
