8 Favourite Travel Books for Kids

Thursday, January 31, 2019

We are so excited to team up with Elise at www.3kidstravel.com and share some of our favourite travel themed books for kids. One of the ways we get our kids excited about our next destination, or upcoming trips is through books. We've tried to include books that will appeal to a variety of age ranges, that are interactive, and wonderful for visual learners as well. We're always adding to our collection and would love to know your go to travel books!

1. This is Series by M. Sasek- We love this colourful and playful book series. The author incorporates beautiful illustrations of architecture, historic monuments, parks etc. and also adds lively text to keep kids' attention. We love how colourful the books are and the attention to detail about the various
aspects of each city he covers. Some favourites are the London and Paris books. -Elise

2. My Little City series- We are always on the look out for book that will help our youngest daughter get excited about the places we visit. These books cover the highlights of major cities and the illustrations are adorable and baby-friendly. The text is simple and perfectly complements the beautiful images. -Elise

And how darling is this supplemental matching game? Such a fun way to reinforce the books. -Sarah

3. National Parks of the U.S.A.- this oversized guide is perfect for budding National Parks enthusiasts- it takes a lot information about specific parks, including facts about flora and fauna, and distills it into smaller packages that are easily and delightfully digested. The illustrations are reminiscent of vintage travel posters which we find oh so charming. -Sarah

4. City Trails Series by Lonely Planet - as a kid I loved looking through my parent's Fodors travel guides and now I'm a huge fan of Lonely Planet guides so I think these City Trails guides for kids are awesome. They highlight various trails throughout different cities and have two characters, Marco & Amelia, who will help your kids discover some off the beaten path activities. While younger kids will have fun looking at the pages, this one is best for ages 8+ -Sarah

5. Richard Scarry's A Day at the Aiport- We are obsessed with Richard Scarry books because of the intricate details he includes. This book focuses specifically on the airport and helps kids see the terminal, runway, tower, etc. Kids and parents will love how interactive this book is, it comes with stickers and will keep kids entertained for a long time. -Elise

6. Not For Parents Series by Lonely Planet- This book series is great for younger and older kids (ideal age is 8+) and puts a fun spin on travel that helps kids take ownership of their travel experience by learning on their own. The books include all the cool information for kids to know about a country and they are jam packed with fun facts and colourful pictures. -Elise

7.- Everything & Everywhere- this book is beautifully illustrated and serves as a whimsical introduction to a smattering of cities around the world. We love that there are so many clever details to be found and discussed in relation to each city; we think this book serves as a wonderful way to spark excitement about world travel, especially for the aesthetically discerning.

8. The 50 States- another oversized guide, but this time for the 50 states. We love to get this book out before we travel around the US to learn fun facts about the states we will be visiting. This one is colourful, graphic, and makes me excited for road trips (which are possibly my least favourite form of travel, so that's quite a feat). We also like to pair it will this puzzle for birthdays and more fun learning opportunities. -Sarah


  1. I've read all these travel books for kids and it's really amazing. Being a mother, I provide these books to my kids. My most favorite book is "how to a create Wiki page" because it's really exceptional and skillful book.
