This is the perfect companion to some of literature's most famous tangible sights in the world. It is great to add to an itinerary or even develop an itinerary around!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Interesting travel idea bookBy North GrueskinIt is an interesting book to read and look at. I hope to use some of the ideas someday. Not very practical since a lot of the travel destinations are international and also a lot of the books I've never heard of and I'm a big reader. In their imaginations, children travel the world when they read such books as Madeline, A Bear Called Paddington, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and Little House on the Prairie. Make these imaginary journeys a reality for your children with visits to the actual settings of these and dozens more of the best-loved tales in childrens literature. Storybook Travels is the ultimate guide for book-loving parents in search of vacations the whole family will enjoy. Let Storybook Travels be your familys companion on unforgettable excursions, including:A magical walk through London looking for the mysterious spots young Harry frequents in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone A fun-filled visit to the Plaza Hotel in New York City, reliving the charmed existence of Eloise A busy day in the tiny Tuscan village of Collodi, watching a puppet show, exploring a hedge maze, and enjoying other activities in homage to The Adventures of Pinocchio A scenic trek following the same trail created by Brighty the Burro, a real-life hero whose story is told in Brighty of the Grand Canyon A wonderful sojourn in Paris and surrounding areas, visiting museums, eating at typical French cafs, and spotting the famous water lilies at Monets home in Giverny, all celebrated in Linnea in Monets Garden An afternoon of barbecue and music at the Chicago Blues Festival, in the imaginary company of Yolonda and her harmonica-playing little brother, the stars of Yolondas GeniusWith itineraries for more than thirty locales in North America and Europe, Storybook Travels explores destinations near and far, rural and urban. Whether you want to plan a trip that will mean as much to you as it will to your children (or grandchildren), are looking for ways to enrich already-planned trips, or want to bring to life the fondly remembered books of your own childhood, Storybook Travels is your guide to one enchanting journey after another. An approach to family travel that keeps the child alive in all of us, and in the process helps us to understand the history, the meaning, the mythology, and the mystery of these very special storybook places.
