I must first admit that I am a bit of a connoisseur and collector of travel books Further, I actually like to read these travel guides, even if I m not planning on visiting the subject destination at any point in the near future I find these guides a really good way to get to know a place As a parent with children, I ve added the traveling with kids and the guide for kids type books to my travel genre reading list These Not For Parents Lonely Planet guidebooks are among the best I ve found for f [...]
Gosh I love our library I was so happy to find this book It s the kind of nonfiction my daughter can t put down I might bring it along on my next trip, too.
More reviews and no fluff on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress My husband is from England, and my son was too young to remember his last trip to visit his grandparents So I got this book to give him an introduction to London This guide is made for teens, but I hoped it might also be interesting for him despite being so much younger.There was quite a bit of the macabre in here, which made it not appropriate for him So I just carefully flip past all that when going over it with him, along with the e [...]

Not for Parents London Everything You Ever Wanted to Know by Margaret Hynes is a fun read for children about London They will learn some of the traditions and customs of this country, fun facts, and history This book talks about so many different things you don t get bored This book is set up similarly to the Ripley s Believe it or Not books Very educational read for kids.2015 Summer Reading Review
I thoroughly enjoyed this very visual, easy to read little peek into London There is information about historical people and events, pop culture, food, places to see and things to do, and I would have loved this book as a kid.I also like that while the text is very simplistic, probably to appeal to even the kids who hate reading , there are web links on almost every page where you can go to learn about whatever was on that page I know I m going to be checking them out
Rather than taking the usual approach of working geographically, Lonely Planet s guidebook to London for kids features 2 page spreads on subjects such as royalty, the Blitz, Shakespeare and lots of wonderful gruesome and grosefulness, sewers, jack the ripper, severed heads and ghosties A nice size and great fun.
Disappointing I was looking for a kid friendly book to give my boys background on the historically significant London sights Instead, it seems designed to convince reluctant pre teens teens that London is cool by spending a lot of ink covering the creepy stuff the plague, the history of not for American palettes eel pie, etc
An interesting book that gives me an idea about London, a country that I have always wanted to visit Targeted at kids and teens, this book contains quirky facts and colorful graphics that are appealing to the eyes Not only that, it is also full of zest and has a great energy to it Very well done.Overall, I will give it an easy 5 stars.
Great book I wish it had been around when we went to London several years ago great graphics, very eye catching, easy to read but very informative Definitely recommend for any family planning a trip to London.
I liked the information in it and it covered a number of topics like architecture, fashion, sports, and music along with history and culture.I really enjoyed doing the quizzes too and overall this was a short, illustrated and easy to read text on London.
Got this from the library as kind of a joke to show my friends I was prepping for our trip in April Then I read it cover to cover I was totally interested the whole time a great spread of info colorful, great pics kids and adults will love it, I think
Informative, fun, visual history and culture guide Great gift for a traveling kid of your acquaintance
A great added value series for those traveling with children or those interested in fascinating tidbits about common and uncommon sights.
Brilliant guide for tweens teens on London highlights I found a lot of fun ideas for both youts and adults.
Fun facts about London geared towards kids Great little travelogue.
The best guide book about London, so far I m a visual person
I like this one equally
Harusnya kita punya buku semacam ini untuk kota2 di Indonesia Atau saya yg belum tahu
