Karma Kids Travel – Explore London, a travel guide-activity book is an original concept
This guide is designed just for kids between the ages of 7-12., to enable them to get the most out of their holiday. It is laid out in an easy-to-understand style. Interesting information specific to a place is presented creatively and related challenges follow so that kids become actively involved rather than being passive observers.
There are currently a couple of guides on the market targeted at kids, but they are not interactive and talk to the kids rather than aim to get them involved. The USP of this book is that it will get them excited about visiting a place and ‘doing’ – rather than feel they are being dragged around from site to site.
Apart from sections on the main sites in London, there are general sections about walking around town, money, transportation and extra ‘kicks’ (challenges) for the kid to do – all of this ensures that there is always something to interest the child throughout the visit to London.
The holiday experience starts with the planning and www.karmakidstravel.com allows the kids to plan their London holiday with their parents through an interactive calendar and packing lists. It also gives them information about history, food, language and the Queen.
In addition, when they return they can upload their photos and provide feedback to Karma.
London was chosen as the first book, as Yasmeen Van Baugh lived there for many years. In addition, London is the ideal place to visit with kids, there is so much to do everyone – even the fussiest child will find something that excites them in London, and the book which is beautifully illustrated will whet their appetite.
