100 Places That Can Change your Child's Life
From your Backyard to the Ends of the EarthBook - 2012
What you won't find inside this book: predictable itineraries and lists of landmarks and events. Instead, you'll get evocative, slice-of-life experiences and age-appropriate ideas that illuminate place and culture. You'll meet actor and travel writer Andrew McCarthy, who tours the suqs of Marrakech with his seven-year-old son; photographer Annie Griffiths, who shares the miraculous migration to Mexico of the monarch butterflies; Tom Ritchie, who has guided countless children and parents to Antarctica for more than 30 years; and countless others who are cultural treasures, great storytellers, and keepers of a sense of place. Packed with ideas to supplement the travel experience - foods, music, films, and carefully curated lists of kid-friendly activities and places to eat and stay--this inspiring book is the perfect trip planner to excite children about culture and the unique magic the world has to offer.
