Review: The Travel Activity Book

Travel the world, right from your living room!

In The Travel Activity Book, a new title from Lonely Planet, you'll find facts and figures, and a stack of stickers.

This is a simple activity book. The stickers (more than 250 of them!) fill the gaps in the pictures that illustrate the book. Some fit in blank shapes, while others allow for more free-form artistic expression.

There are colourful gems from El Dorado in Colombia, a roller coaster from Denmark's Tivoli Gardens theme park, and the stickers for New Zealand are football players doing the Haka!

Stickers will certainly be of great appeal to kids, but there's more than that in The Travel Activity Book.

Colour in the Russian Matryoshka dolls, join the dots to reveal a lion from Mozambique, and find your way through the maze to escape the Greek Minotaur.

There is also at least one unusual piece of trivia listed for each country included in the book.

Learn about China's 8,000 year old Terracotta Warriors, Kazakhstan's space launch site, and Brazil's Amazon rainforest with more than 16,000 species of tree. Not forgetting cultural delicacies like Japan's pufferfish and Ghana's snails.

Whether your family is planning a trip, you want to share world culture, or your children simply need some entertainment, The Travel Activity Book will definitely sprinkle their day with geographical facts and keep them occupied.
