Not what I was expecting. I have two little boys (ages 3 and 10 months) and was hoping for some helpful hints of great places to take them, ideas of how to do so without going crazy or spending 12+ hours on an airplane (aka - "going crazy"). This book was written by someone in England, so travel to Western Europe (where most of the recommended travel destinations in the book are) is easy. The section on North America is pretty small, so this book wasn't helpful for me.
