Travel with Kids - Italy

A Listmania! list by Nancy Solomon (Sudbury, MA)
The list author says: "I'm a huge believer in preparation before travel. This is a list of books that we enjoyed before our trip to Italy. The top books on the list are to read with the kids and lower books are for the adults in the group to enjoy. Have fun! We still read these all the time and they bring back great memories and keep the trip alive."
