Travel with Children (How to) – Maureen Wheeler
I had been on the road for years when I fell pregnant with my first child. I immediately bolted to the closest bookstore (I was in London at the time) and bought THIS book. I was so relieved to read that having a child would not stop me from travelling. Apart from all the tips and advice there were some wonderful stories from parents who were actually out there travelling with there children. This book lost it’s relevance the more I travelled, however that original copy still sits on my shelf and holds great sentimental value.
There is a reason this book is in its 8th edition—it is the book to buy for families travelling to Europe. For seasoned travellers some of the information provided is a little obvious, and not overly adventurous, but it is still a must have for families embarking on their first European trip.
I’m pleased that this is now available for Kindle. It’s a good book but I always felt the hardcopy was too bulky. We like to travel light. Now we can with this on our eReaders.
Gulliver’s Travels for Kids (Classics for Kids) – Luke Hayes
How do you teach your child to travel? It’s not just about travelling around the world; it’s also about opening up other worlds. This is a great version of Jonathan Swift’s classic, and a journey all kids should take.
Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, Revised Edition – Ruth Van Reken & David Pollock
Since it was first published, this book has become the must-have book for expatriate families. It’s an easy mix of academic research with practical anecdotes and advice. An essential book for anyone moving or raising their kids overseas.
The Art of Travel – Alain de Botton
I love this book. I read it and am always inspired to travel more. Rather than tell us how to travel this book makes us question why we travel.
