S. Riches (via Amazon) -
Travelling With Children really is a must have for families who are considering travelling but are unsure of what will best suit them. It covers almost every type of holiday that is suitable for children offering advice so that you can choose the most suitable holiday for your family. With case studies and advice on what transport to use and most importantly advice on how to avoid problems and what to do if things do go wrong, it is an essential read for every parent. Near the back of the book is a 'Help List' which contains contact details for many different travel resources such as the Foreign Office and recommended holiday companies/parks etc. All very useful indeed. The chapters include advice and tips on holidays including, Package and Theme Park holidays, City Breaks, Off the Beaten Track and Camping or Caravanning to name a few. Travelling With Kids though has made a really big impact on me and I feel this is mainly due to how easy it is to digest, the chapters cover all information on the topics so you do not feel as if you have to read the whole book to keep up. It is predominantly an information resource that showcases the information in easy to digest bite sized chunks that reads very well. This is THE travel guide book that every family needs!

Holidays are a keenly anticipated part of life, but sometimes the planning can seem very daunting, especially with children to take into account. This book aims to guide parents in selecting the most appropriate sort of holiday for their family. It covers all ages and types of holiday - from cruises to camping - and I felt it may well give parents confidence to tackle a type of holiday they had previously felt to be out of the question. Plenty of practical experiences from parents will be appreciated and the section on travelling with babies and toddlers is very practical. I did wonder if the book might be better titled Holidaying with Children!

I've been recommending this to all my mum-chums - especially those who have just had babies and are panicking about how they'll ever holiday again! Travelling with Children is jam-packed with sensible, relevant advice aimed at REAL parents, as in those struggling with the realities of taking X number of off-spring camping/abroad/to holiday camp/kids' resort (rather than for affluent couples heading off on luxury breaks with a nanny in tow). It's a real mine of information and a good read, to boot. If you've got children and you're planning a holiday, it needs to be up there on your tickets, passport, currency check-list!

This book is an essential and a great present for new parents, with easy to read and informative chapters on all types of holidays. It is written in a very reassuring manner and cover all the 'what if' questions parents have when travelling with small children and gives some excellent case studies. The "Help List" at the back is great for all parents as are the check lists of essentials to take as I am forever forgetting something.
