I am a big believer in reading books about a destination before you go and after you get back.  It can enhance your knowledge before your trip and can keep the trip alive in your mind afterwards.  That’s why my destination posts contain books for kids and teens that are specific to that destination.  

My favorite genres are historical fiction and nonfiction so you will notice that most of my book recommendations fall into those categories.  These types of books are great to read before or after a trip and can help your children understand the destination in a deeper way.

For additional book recommendations, follow me on Instagram, Goodreads, and subscribe to my newsletter where I pair books with historical sites you can visit.

Be sure to also check out my store for links to my favorite and recommended books. is an Amazon alternative that supports independent bookstores.  This link is an affiliate link where I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.
