Imagination allows travel to start before you leave the house and even before you pack your bags. Travel can start the minute you learn about a new place or wonder what it would be like to go somewhere…different. Books about travel spark wonder and curiosity about the world around us. They make our travel experiences richer and more enjoyable. That’s why I’m excited to bring you this travel books giveaway. Not only can parents win a copy of my book, The Travel Mamas’ Guide, but also kids can enjoy a prize pack of five books by Lonely Planet Kids.

  1. Looking forward to the giveaway day. 🙂

  2. My husband and I traveled as often as possible before having our daughter, but now need all the traveling with a kid tips we can get! We have a big list of places we can’t wait to show her (not to mention the Europe withdrawals I’m going through!), but besides a little road trip, we’ve been too nervous to take her anywhere. I just recently found your website and am anxious to read your book. My daughter already loves looking through all of my guidebooks from past trips, so I know she’d love to get her hands on the Lonely Planet kids books as well.

  3. I’d be most interested in Adventures in Wild places because I think it’d entertain all three of my kids (8, 5, & 2). Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Christine S says

    I would love to win the Amazing World Atlas for my daughter. She loves learning about places and where they are in comparison to where we are.

  8. We travel a ton with our son. He would love to win the atlas. I didn’t realize LP had a kids section now. Love it!

  9. I think all the books sound wonderful but I’d love The Amazing World Atlas because the stickers make it interactive. This would be a great gift for my niece or nephew to help them learn more about the world and inspire them to dream to visit other countries and learn about other cultures.

  10. We have 3 trips planned this summer, spanning 8,000+ miles…I would be most excited about the Travel Mama’s Guide because I need to stay sane with my 6 and 3 year olds!
