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."
