Meet the Author

Author Laura Schaefer explains the concept behind the Planet Explorers Travel Guides for Kids series:

"I wanted to give kids an easy way to become vacation experts. The whole philosophy behind the series is empowering kids. E-book technology allows readers to jump from information about The Tower of London to a link that explains what the Gunpowder Plot was all about. The format is perfect for young readers. It's all there, linked and ready to go. Writing London 2012 was wonderful. I love history and I've been a middle school curriculum writer for over a decade, so my guidebooks definitely have a 'social studies' feel to them.

"Planet Explorers guidebooks cut out all the stuff kids would find boring if they looked through a regular travel guide and focus on attractions and fun facts. The guides have a lot of pictures and even include a quiz at the end. Parents have told me they're excited about the easy way the guidebooks incorporate learning about geography, history, art and science into real-life experiences.

"I loved traveling as a kid. I want to empower my readers to be part of planning vacations with their parents. That way, the trip is more fun and fulfilling for the whole family."

    Help your parents explore London

    This is one of a series of travel guides for young people. I targets kids by addressing the things that matter the most – fun and food.

    Each attraction talks about the fun parts of the visit and the neat things to see and do. Next comes a description of the food services at the site or the lack (better eat ahead of time!).

    Sure there are the usual suspects, the British Museum and Westminster Abbey, but there is also the Eye of London, a giant ferris wheel that no kid or adult, personally speaking, would want to miss.

    Also included are a timeline of history and a bunch of fun facts.

    Beware, there is a quiz included, but no one is grading, so do it and have fun.

    I wish I had read this before I visited London and I’m and adult (more or less).
