This is one of the few family travel books that extend beyond vacations to Disney World and national parks. Truszkowski offers experienced and insightful advice for those of us who want to provide meaningful international experiences for our kids. Whether you are heading off on the grand tour of Europe, a weekend in Montreal or a two month stay in Malaysia, this book has relevant information on planning your trip, health and safety issues, saving money and even choosing the right toys to bring. I found her ideas on preparing kids for their trip and helping them deal with the experience to be particularly helpful. While the advice is kept rather general, even seasoned travelers should find Take The Kids Traveling a useful resource.
