Lonely Planet Kids Let’s Explore giveaway

Part of the kids extensive library of books

“You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads”, said one of my literary idols, Ray Bradbury. It’s a message both of the kids have taken to heart… especially the crazy bit.

It’s fairly obvious that we’ve passed on the gypsy gene on to both Raffles and Sugarpuff, but my tiny travellers have also inherited a bookworm gene. Both have embraced books, not only as a source of great entertainment, but as a great way to discover and learn about different places, faces and ideas. Which is rather handy given neither seem to have been blessed with a living-within-our-means gene and are unable to reconcile their parents dubious bank balance with their extravagant travel wish lists.

So to mentally scratch their ever-itchy feet and appease their appetite for other cultures we started our own special little library of cultural and travel tomes. Already packed full of stories of great adventure, exotic countries and Raffles’ favourite Lonely Planet’s Not-for-Parents Travel Guides an awesome travel series written for kids and packed with intriguing stories and quirky facts – we’ve recently added three new books to the collection. Only these ones are appeasing the curiosity and fuelling the imagination of our littlest explorer-in-training, Sugarpuff.

Lonely Planet Kids Let’s Explore series

In Lonely Planet Kids Let’s Explore… series, gadget guru Amelia and map loving Marco journey deep into the jungles, embark on an incredible safari and explore what lies beneath the ocean surface to show kids just how truly amazing our planet is.

Ideal for children aged five and up, and perfect for on-the-road entertainment, the series takes little explorers around the world with striking illustrations, fascinating facts, fun activities and more than 250 bright and colourful stickers. And my tiniest traveller has been so enraptured with the series she has spent hours happily colouring, curating colourful wildlife scenes and solving the fun puzzles.

    On an adventure we should go,
    Perhaps Paris or Tokyo?
    Spain would be complete bliss
    But what others would we miss?
    We think a train ride will settle this
    On an adventure through Europe, I do not jesr

    Cheese wants to go to Zanzibar to meet the creatures that live there. She thinks a pink elephant named Alexander lives there out of a book we’ve been reading.

      I want to go and meet a pink elephant called Alexander in Zanzibar too! 😉

    I just asked my little 3 year old where in the world she would love to go today. She replied the Amazon to meet pink dolphins.

    Good on Lonely Planet for igniting the passion for worldly adventures for the next generation.

    I always use Lonely Planet guides when I’m travelling. I didn’t know they had kids books too. That’s awesome.

    My little explorer can’t wait to explore Kalimantan (Indonesia) to find out why her dad likes it so much.

    LOL my six year old wants to go to “Legoland” and I’ve had a very hard time convincing him that Legoland is not a real place. He thinks I am keeping him away on purpose.

      March 19, 2016 at 8:44 am (8 years ago)

      Legoland IS a real place…. there are several of them. Be afraid! Imagine how many lego bricks you could tread on there

    My big girl would LOVE these! She’s only just now starting to get really in to the idea of different places and she’s really keen to go to Darwin. Her Nan & Pop just got back from a holiday there to visit relatives, and Punky was quite rapt sitting with Pop and looking through his photos and now she wants to go too!

    Disney world is high in our list at the moment, Mstr 6 and Miss 3 are convinced all their heroes live there and are desperate to visit!

    Very cool next time we travel I will be investigating if there is a lonely planet for kids for our destination!

    I listened to a story yesterday about my little man rescuing a tiger during his time in Africa and then he took it to Madagascar when it was better and freed it… I am thinking he would like to fulfill his dreams because we haven’t been to Africa recently… in fact ever!

      March 19, 2016 at 8:52 am (8 years ago)

      It’s just this kind of imagination that Lonely Planet kids books encourage so your little guy has to be our winner. Hope he enjoys the books.

    My two kids love animals and we spend quality time in conversation about how we should treat our animal friends. My young daughter thinks all birds should be free and this is her biggest wish, maybe an adventure to spot some ridiculously gorgeous creatures in their natural habitat- get our Sir David A completely on! For this wd would need to travel to every inch of the world with our eyes open to the sky and then look with wonder at the ground to meet all that lives low too. It already sounds too fun!

    From the 3 year old to the 14 year old, mine would love anywhere that they can see animals; zoos to nature reserves, they’d drink it all in!

    You had better not let him find out about Legoland in Malaysia or there might be another trip on the cards 😉
    Lovely story
    Thanks so much for sharing

    I’ve been thinking about getting a globe for my kids. I’m not sure they would immerse themselves in books over and over again, but a globe always has appeal I think.
