Review:

If you think children and travel are mutually exclusive, Travel with Children is here to prove you wrong. Author Maureen Wheeler had been circumnavigating the globe for years in the company of her husband and saw no reason to stop once their two children came along. Her book was written in response to the many parents who wondered if they should postpone travel until their kids were older. Absolutely not, Wheeler says; for every drawback to travel with kids (and there are many), there are also numerous benefits. Parenting is, after all, a universal experience, and children can open many doors to foreign cultures. This third edition of Travel with Children includes Maureen Wheeler's practical guide to everything from getting ready to getting wherever you're going, as well as travel stories from readers, other Lonely Planet staffers, and even the Wheelers' well-traveled children, Kieran and Tashi.

So, if you have a yen to travel, don't worry about farming the kids out to grandma--arm yourself with Maureen Wheeler's Travel with Children and take them along. Think of the stories you'll have to tell the grandchildren.
