One of the great gifts books can give kids is the ability to foster curiosity for people, places, and things they wouldn’t necessarily experience in reality. These 10 titles from the This Is travel series, written and illustrated by the painter Miroslav Sasek, is an amazing way to introduce a child to some of the most beautiful and historically important cities, states, and countries in the world. Each title, published by Random House, tours a different place via lush illustrations and interesting facts.
Each set comes wrapped in a light grey book band with “bon voyage” printed along the front. Each band is hand-sewn and printed on archival canvas. The elastic closure ensures easy removal and placement.
