What people are saying . . .
   
  "Finally, after becoming progressively more and more despondent about where to go and what to do with our European family holiday, we find your fantastic website and all becomes clearer and easier to plan our way! Thank you, I was close to putting it in the 'too hard' box!"  
  "We use your website every week in our classroom. We have a letter of the week which we associate with a country starting with that letter. The children like "travel" each week to a new country. Our program is also very literature based and I love the fact that you have books about different places on your website."  
  "What a wonderful write-up you've provided for travelling in Costa Rica with kids: it's been extremely useful."  
  " I love your site - was wonderful to explore it before a family trip to Scotland last summer and, thanks to do, we had a great time at an adventure playground you recommended."  
  "We are taking a year away from school to travel with our kids (9 and 11) This website has been amazing!!! The book references are the best! Thank you so much!"  
  "Thank you for your great web site. Last year I stumbled onto your site while planning a trip with my 8 year old daughter and her grandmother to Paris. In 2007 we are now planning to go to Italy and again have found your web site to be a valuable reference. I love how you have set it up – it is easy to use and I appreciate the book references."  
  "I love your web site and thanks for covering Egypt. We lived there for 3 years and my kids love it. I knew you and really been there when I read the suggestion about taking a water taxi ... something you don't see manyu tourists do, but a great experience. Also, used many of your Greece suggestions."  
  "I visited your Web site and appreciate the truly wonderful books you recommend to children about many special places of the world!"  
  "I'm starting to plan a trip with my grandson (age 8) to England and Scotland in April. I was delighted to find your website and particularly likes that your include suggested children's books. I am sure you're suggestions will make our trip memorable."  
  "What a wonderful and informative site. We will be going to Italy and France this summer and I have bought and read many guidebooks which are written for adults and which focus mostly on churches, more churches and museums. Thanks so much for providing specific information relevant for families. You have saved me so much time and energy!"  
  Keep up the web site. We have found it really helpful for our trips to Rome, Paris and Berlin in the past 18 months."  
  "Your site is absolutely wonderful. I took my 8-year old son to Amsterdam for two days in July, armed with the information on your Amsterdam page, and we had a blast. We'll go somewhere else next summer, and we'll be sure to check your site first."  
  "In researching our upcoming trip, my son found your site first and he has been telling me about it repeatedly. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas."  
  "What an outstanding site! Well done you guys. We are about to head off to Europe for a month and had been looking high and low for a decent source of info for travelling with kids. I need look no further."  
  "What a great site! We are preparing to travel with our 2 year old daughter to India and China for 3 weeks. I have found your site very useful and reassuring. It is great to hear people be so enthusiastic about traveling with kids."  
  "You're invaluable. Thoughts like these don't show up on the travel books."  
  " I am so happy to have found your website. I have a 14 year old daughter and 7 year old son who are great travelers but I like to be cognizant of activities, places and events that are well suited to their interests. Thank you for your wonderful website; the information is relevant, clear and graphically pleasing."  
  "I would like to thank you for your information on places to travel with children. It has helped me immensely when choosing my holiday destination."  
  "I'm taking my two kids to San Diego and just stumbled across your site. How fantastic that you include children's abooks about the area. Your information is logically grouped and suggestions are helpful. Thank you so much for having such an insightful site."  
  I just have to comment on what a helpful site you have created. I am an American expat living in Amsterdam. I am looking for some fun things to do with my kids while they are on fall break. Your site has given me some excellent ideas. Thanks!"  
  "You get an A+ on content. I have traveled extensively with my children and I find your book recommendations extremely useful in getting my children prepared to travel to a specific destination."  
  "Thanks for putting together such a wonderful website - it's clear, cleanly laid-out, easy to follow and obviously written by people with children! It's been a fabulous resource ."  
  "Just a quick note to say how wonderful the website is! So informative, especially for a basic French speaker like myself who wants to get the most out of Paris with two very energetic little boys."  
  " We were in Munich from 2006 - 2008 with our two children, then ages 11 and 8, and your website was my 'go to' for all our travel planning. You have great suggestions about kid friendly sights and I love how you mention family friendly parks and open spaces. I have to say that my most favorite feature of your site are the book recommendations - we would always try to get a few before visiting a location."  
 

"I just wanted to take a second to tell you folks how invaluable your site is to me as a resource. I use it for three different reasons.

First, I love to travel with my three boys, and it makes it even better when we have great books to read together before, during, and after our trips.

Second, I'm a 6th grade teacher, and, over the last few years, I've been asked to develop thematic units for my students to work on during literature time. I was allowed to use whatever themes I wanted, so, since I love to travel, I decided to make my class "literature of the world." I've used your site to select novels, picture books, non-fiction books, and numerous other resources. Nearly every book you've recommended has worked perfectly. I love that you give a variety of suggestions based on reading level, interests, and even genres.

Finally, I run a student travel program. For about 18 months, I work with a small group of students before traveling for 12 days to a foreign country with them. That 18 months is spent studying the history and culture of the places we'll visit, and every week we incorporate pieces of literature that we find from your site. "
