When I was a kid, there were two things that our family was huge on – reading and travel. I often had a big stack of books to keep me entertained when we went somewhere. I would have loved to have the Paris Goes series of books!
In the Paris Goes series, a young girl named Paris travels to various locales. She goes to Lake Tahoe with her family for a quick getaway. Paris takes a trip to San Francisco to do some shopping and sight-seeing. They even go to Los Angeles, which turns into a trip throughout all of Southern California. One of the things I love about these books is that they actually include the local sights, including some that are kind of off the beaten path.
Paris also takes trips to New York, Italy, and Paris. She’s one really well traveled girl!
My Friend Paris also has a series of books dealing with her twin sisters. There’s the I’m Having Twins, My Twins Are Coming Home, and then the Twins first events. The twins’ first Halloween, Christmas, and Birthday are all chronicled. These books are written by a young girl, too.
If you have young kids that like to read or are interested in going places, these are worth checking out.
