books for everywhere Travel for Kids
     
 
Throughout Travel for Kids you'll find books about different countries, people and places. Additionally, each month our staff chooses a "book for everywhere," featured on our home page.
Our staff pick might be the story of a boy who dreams of words and becomes the poet Pablo Neruda, or a Chinese tale of the journey of the magical monkey king, the vision of Wangari who re-planted the trees of Kenya, a guide for young explorers, a girl learns to listen to the wind and make tortillas round like the sun, adventures of a young boy on a round the world sailing voyage, an architect who turns nature into art, tracking animals in the wild and the importance of conservation, an activity kit of buried treasure, the true story of a young man who changes the lives of children in rural Pakistan.
Books for everywhere reach beyond a single person or country. Enchanting illustrations are works of art we can touch. We keep these books close by, a tangible reminder of imagination, adventure, and wonder in the world.
