Travel with Board Books

Sometimes we can travel to a new place in a book, even with our little ones! Reading books about other countries or sites can help you introduce geography and culture to young children. Here are 3 travel board books that our family has enjoyed reading this winter:

Baby Yosemite by Katherine Brumage

My husband is from Southern California and we have visited Yosemite before – it is stunning! This book has lovely photographs of wildlife in their natural habitats as found in this popular and well-known national park. The text is straightforward for young readers.

W is for Wombat: My First Australian Word Book by Bronwyn Bancroft

Want to go down under? Your child will love the vibrant, bold paintings as you practice the alphabet and learn a bit about Australia. This book contains some unusual new animals and plant life to capture your interest, too.

London: A Book of Opposites by Ashley Evanson

Our whole family enjoyed reading this book together. Many popular tourist attractions are included with the added bonus of learning opposites such as sunny and rainy, old and new, under and over. Great starting point to practice opposites with toddlers or preschoolers.

Best Ages: 0-3 years
