Tales for Tiny Travelers // Review

I’m always looking for children’s books that link our travels with history. Our kids get so much more from our travels when our kids can connect what they are hearing on tours and seeing as we walk with a story. Tales for Tiny Travelers does just that. These books pick out a historical figure from a particular place and tell their story. We recently took a few of them with us on our travels.
On our recent trip to Portugal we brought Vasco Da Gama along with us. The Tales for Tiny Travelers are small paperback books. They pack perfectly. I love that I can slide one in our day bag and pull it out when we are waiting for a tour to start or sitting at lunch. We love to have the kids match the pictures in the book with places they see while traveling.
The books are full of colorful illustrations which entertain the Middle and Little Little. The Big Little is able to help me read most of the book, which also makes it a good tool to work on reading while we travel.
My favorite part of the books though is that in the back it tells you where to find the location that each page talks about. This has actually influenced some of our trip planning. We are able to show the kids the places that are in the book and really bring the book to life.
We also picked up William the Silent, which is all about the Netherlands and heavily features our beloved town of Delft. I often just have this book in my bag as the kids love all the familiar places.
The New Church in our own market square is a perfect match to the illustration in the book.
