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'.
