Kids who learn to travel will travel to learn. National Geographic Traveler Editor Keith Bellows sends you and your children globetrotting for life-changing vacations that will expand their horizons and shape their perspectives. What you won't find inside: predictable itineraries and lists of landmarks and events. Instead, you'll get evocative, slice-of-life experiences and age-appropriate ideas that illuminate place and culture. Each chapter of 100 Places That Can Change Your Child's Life plumbs the heart of a special place-from the Acropolis to Machu Picchu to the Grand Canyon-all from the perspective of insiders who see destinations through a child's eyes. You'll meet actor and travel writer Andrew McCarthy, who tours the suqs of Marrakech with his seven-year-old son; photographer Annie Griffiths, who shares the miraculous migration to Mexico of the monarch butterflies; Tom Ritchie, who has guided countless children and parents to Antarctica for more than 30 years; the waterman who knows where to see the ponies of Assateague in the true wild; and countless others who are cultural treasures, great storytellers, and keepers of a sense of place. Packed with ideas to supplement the travel experience-foods, music, films, and carefully curated lists of kid-friendly activities and places to eat and stay-this inspiring book is the perfect trip planner to excite children about culture and the unique magic the world has to offer.

Boring and unrealistic. This is more like a "look at all of the cool things I could do with my kids" book - good luck trying to duplicate even half of them.
