Travel books are a great way to immerse your children in the traveling mentality even when you’re not on the road. Here are five travel book series to check out for your little ones when you’re home or on the go.
The iGo series puts your child into the story as they travel to cities around the globe. You choose several features of the story including the child’s outfit, hair, mode of transportation, birthday and departing destination. The stories center around several famous landmarks from the city but include an adventure storyline your child won’t soon forget.
Currently only London is available but future books are on the way.

Bébé Voyage received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This board book series combines Baby Lit’s ingenious storytelling for babies with illustrations from Lucy Darling. In All Aboard Paris you and your child will learn some French words as you explore Paris. The beautiful illustrations are sure to engage your child while you learn the language of love.
Ashley Evanson is a talented illustrator who combines learning basics with travel in her Hello World book series. In Paris: A Book of Shapes young children are introduced to shapes, while older children are challenged to find them in a picture of Paris on the opposing pages. The bright colors make this board book interesting even to the youngest reader.
Atlas of Adventure
In the Atlas of Adventures series, Lucy Letherland illustrates the world in the way children see it. In Atlas of Adventures, explore the world through experiences you can have around the globe. Kids become lost dreaming about floating in the Dead Sea or participating in Carnival in Rio. My kids love to ask questions about each adventure and search the pictures, which take up two full pages for each adventure.
Good Night Our World
The Good Night Our World series celebrates places all over the world by helping children wish the city goodnight. Each book highlights a city by having you say goodnight to attractions and landmarks. These books are a great way to introduce a new city to your child or help them remember a place you’ve already visited. My boys love Goodnight Michigan, a gift from their Godmother who lives there.
The Good Night Our World series includes 144 titles.
