There are plenty of travel books for adults out there. From factual Lonely Planets to fictional adventure stories, adults are encouraged to explore the world. But what if there was something similar for children? A way to open their eyes to the power of travel, new places and people. Well, there actually is.
Going to Les Baux-de-Provence is the delightful tale of a French family’s excursion to a chateau in the small French province of Les Baux. The two girls, Anne-Laure and La Petite Josette are fascinated by the local village, awe-struck by the stunning views and thoroughly exhausted when the day comes to an end. Their parents, Mama and Papa, guide their daughters throughout the day and encourage their curiosity and zest for adventure.
A sweet and engaging story of a family outing, Going to Les-Baux-de-Provence is written in English and French and accompanied with gorgeous illustrations. The author, Ashley Davidson-Fisher, has done a marvelous job of story-telling and the illustrator, Martinique Fisher, has a flair for drawing that perfectly matches her mother’s narration skills.
This is a wonderful children’s book and the perfect gift for budding travelers under 10!
