Feel like escaping these holidays? Dreaming of travelling again? It’s been a long year, and for most people, the holidays will be spent close to home. As frustrating as that can be, it doesn’t mean you can’t travel. Or at least, armchair travel. Books give us the perfect opportunity to experience the world. They’re also an opportunity for parents to share the world with their children.

Below is a list of books that will take you travelling and beyond, experiencing different season, festivals, animals, and adventures… and even some magic. While not quite the real thing, they all offer great opportunities for conversations about the world, and how one day we’ll be back out there again.

This fantastic list of books will not only take you travelling but will also expand your world. Buckle up… but there’s no need to even leave the house.
