It’s A Small Word After All…

Want to know how to ignite the desire of travel in your little ones ?  Just plunk them down on the couch with the new series of travel books from the travel experts at Lonely Planet, called Not For Parents and they’ll be planning the next family vacay in no time.  This new series consists of several smaller books about big cities like Paris, NYC, London & Rome, titled “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know…”.  The main book in the series covers about 200 countries and gives the craziest facts, the most interesting tidbits and most jaw dropping info you could imagine. The pictures are vibrant and the text is super easy to read while staying interesting and relevant.  Our 5 year old, who is just learning to read asks us to read from one of the guilds each night before bed.  She sits there totally captivated…or disgusted, depending on the history or fact we’re reading about (she still shudders that a mommy rat can have 285 babies in a year according to the NYC guild).  They have become a fabulous addition to our kids library.  Best part?  The cheeky “Not For Parents” stamp on the front covers.  Love it!  Lonely Plant has gotten us parents through rainforests in Costa Rica, sunny beaches of Oz and the temples of Cambodia…now they’re teaching our kids the joy of travel too.  Check out the addictive series out at Raincoast Books or on Amazon.
