It is full of excellent ideas - and REAL LIFE stories from many moms that have traveled with their kids, be it around the world or around their state. When I first opened the book, I was intrigued by the Table of Contents. Yes, I am one who reads that (and then a bibliography, if included) first. From talking about Why Travel with Children to Learning before you go, flight plans, friends and family, getting around, pack it up, health and safety, responsible travel, and more - this book is jam-packed with incredibly useful information for family travel. One of my favorite parts of the book is Meeting the Locals - from ideas about spending time with a local family to language, organized meetings or camps, bringing gifts from home, or volunteer work, this section has all the makings to help your child become a true intercultural traveler! Another excellent resource is the extensive packing list for traveling with kids of all ages. I hadn't thought about many of the items on the lists - and am very grateful for it!
Truly, this is THE BEST book I've seen about traveling with kids. Hopefully it will inspire more families to explore the world, become global citizens, and learn that there are great adventures, friends, and learning anywhere!
Wanderlust and Lipstick: Traveling with Kids covers all of the bases with practical advice concerning safety, budget traveling, eco-friendly trips, and how to best utilize technology when you are on the road.
Very specific suggestions about what to pack (and what not to pack) are a wonderful reference for parents of little ones! Take the advice from someone who has made a few mistakes about over packing in the past.
I think this book is especially informative for new parents and will help them gain confidence for that milestone: Baby's First Trip!
I also enjoyed the "in the trenches" stories from 50 mothers to inspire you in conquering the sometimes frightening pilgrimage of parenting on the road.
Also, to all the Dads out there, no lipstick required to enjoy this book - there's good stuff in this one for everyone in the house!
Traveling With Kids does a good job of covering the basics (while delving in deep on the important topics like surviving a plane flight). Where appropriate it provides links and references for more information.
I highly recommend this book.
