100 Places That Can Change Your Child's Life: From Your Backyard to the Ends of the Earth


100 Places That Can Change Your Child's Life: From Your Backyard to the Ends of the Earth Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This evocative book provides all you need to create life-changing vacations around the world with your kids. You won't find rote itineraries or windy, discursive text, lists of museums and landmarks, festivals and events. Instead, you'll get slice-of-life, ageappropriate experiences in special places that offer life experiences and peeks into different cultures.

The book showcases 100 places, each anchored by someone who knows the place intimately. You'll meet Lorenzo Fatzi, a Venetian gondolier, who will share his secrets of the canals; a Nantucket fisherman who gives you a very special nautical tour of the island; animal tracker Vram Seth, who talks about life in India's Ranthambore tiger reserve; and countless others who are cultural treasures, great storytellers, and keepers of a sense of place.

Each chapter answers these simple questions: What is the one experience you must have here that will help you understand it better? That will give you insights into its culture and people? That is unforgettable? And that will enrich the life of a child and at what age?

Each chapter also includes sidebars:

- Culture Pack: Books, recipes, music, and films to preview and supplement actual travel experiences.

- Key Intelligence: Carefully curated lists of kid-friendly things to do and see, where to eat and stay, and what parents should be sensitive to or prepared for.
