As a teacher I am always on the look out for great children’s travel books. As someone who was inspired to travel as a child I believe that the more we read to children about other people and places the higher chance we have of producing well rounded adults who respect the planet and all the people who live in it.

There are so many wonderful books to choose from including activity books for children about various destinations, educational travel books for children, inspirational travel books for kids and many more. 

If you are looking for some great travel books for the children in your family this holiday season then this gift guide to recommended top children’s travel books is the perfect resource!
