I absolutely LOVE the Lonely Planet Kids books as they really do bring the world to life for young explorers everywhere. The children’s imprint from parent company Lonely Planet aims to enhance learning, interaction and appreciation for the planet’s rich diversity of people, places and cultures with engaging and educational products. This bright and colorful books are absolutely FULL of information that will be enjoyed by every member of the family no matter what age they are!
The Cities Book: A Journey Through 86 of the World’s Greatest Cities takes children ages 8+ on a whirlwind tour of famous cities all around the world. It even makes me see these cities in a whole new way! The photographs are remarkable as they show kids what makes each city unique. The information is written in a way for kids to understand and enjoy! This book is THICK at 212 pages and is HOURS of reading entertainment. Even Lil Sis at 5 loves to browse the beautiful photographs and illustrations and she cannot even read yet! Big Sis had a tough time picking a favorite but she told me she is ready to head off to Rio De Janeiro tomorrow!
Take a trip across the Amazon in Unfolding Journeys: Amazon Adventure. This book is an amazing fold-out frieze that is more than six-feet long and can be removed and displayed. One side is full of illustrations on the amazing things that can be found in and along the Amazon. The other side is full of fascinating facts. From the source of the Amazon, high up in the Peruvian Andes, all the way through to the South Atlantic Ocean, you’ll travel through three countries and into some of the deepest jungle in the world. Meet the Matses tribe in Peru, keep your eyes out for the rare pink river dolphin, marvel at the Meeting of the Waters in Manaus and lots more!
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. I love that when I read these books with my girls they get so very excited about these places they may only get to visit in books.
