I love flipping through travel books to find places I’d like to take the kids (and to go myself!). A couple of my favorites are 500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up and Travel with Your Children: A Complete Resource. I pick these up at least every other day to read about fun places and exotic locales, but they’re definitely not meant for kids to read. Since I’d love to get my kids more involved in where we go and what we do, I found these three great travel guide series’ that are perfect for kids.

Not for Parents: The Travel Book: Lonely Planet rolled out this new Not for Parents series in October with Not for Parents: The Travel Book, which covers cool stuff kids will love to know about every country in the world. Your kids will find loads of record-breaking stats, photos and must-know facts about each country, like capital city and currency. You’ll also find Not for Parents travel books specific to London, Paris, Rome and New York.

Planet Explorers Walt Disney World: A Travel Guide for Kids: This Kindle-only ebook was written with your 8- to 12-year-old in mind, with loads of fun facts and tips, which allows your kids to actively participate in the Walt Disney World experience. Plus, you’ll find tips to get the most out of each park, and a rating system with grades like “A” for Awesome and “D” for Dark. Check out author Laura Schaefer’s ebooks on New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter too.

ABC City Guides for Kids: Your little kids will love these fun travel guides that break out attractions and city sights by letter of the alphabet with beautiful photographs and fun facts for kids. Inside the back cover you’ll find a city map, and will also find black and white activity pages. These are ideal for the elementary school set. Look out for guides specific to Boston, Miami, Orlando, Washington, DC and more.

Do you like to look at travel guides as much as I do? Do you have any others that you would recommend for kids? Let me know in the comments.
