We all want to inspire children to travel. Can children's books be the ticket?
The blog Frill Seeker Diary says yes! Here are its picks... Feel free to post your own thoughts in the comments.
Bridge to Terabithia, Katherine Paterson
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, E. L. Konigsburg
James and the Giant Peach, Roald Dahl
Jumanji, Van Allsburg
Madeline, Ludwig Bemelmans
Meet Kirsten, Janet Beeler Shaw
Number the Stars, Lois Lowry
The Boxcar Children, Gertrude Chandler Warner
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis
Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak
My pick for all time best is the Madeline series. Just sayin'.
