Lonely Planet has long been a trusted name in travel guides and guidebooks. However, Lonely Planet isn’t just for adults. They have a whole range of books that are “not for parents,” with the goal of educating children about the world in a fun and entertaining fashion.
From Lonely Planet’s “Not For Parents” series comes How To Be A World Explorer, a children’s book that aims to teach some wilderness survival skills in a way that will make children want to learn.
Age-appropriate travel books
How to be a World Explorer includes content that, according to one parent, is spot on for elementary school-aged children. The information in the book is presented in a way that is educational but not boring.
According to the experts
When it comes to children’s books, the best sources for reviews are children themselves. “What I liked about the book How To Be A World Explorer was that it taught me about the wilderness and how to camp in certain places and only drink pure water, where to hike and how to start a campfire. It taught me about air, polar, desert, jungle, and forest explorations (and everything in between). I absolutely loved this book.”
In fact, Patrick enjoyed the book so much that he became a boy scout so he could apply the skills he read about. If the mark of a good book is making children reach outside their comfort zone and try new things, then How To Be A World Explorer can be considered a success.
