Let’s go. Come on, just a little bit more. Come on, we’re almost there and maybe you’ll get an ice cream if you walk a bit faster…. Well, with the City Walks with Kids, this rhetoric no longer exists. Ouf!
With 50 adventures on foot, described step by step on illustrated sturdy cardboard, kids have a real purpose to walk, and it gives pleasure to the whole family. For the moment, the kids serie only covers the big cities of NY, San Francisco, Washington DC, London and Paris. Let’s hope Chronicle Books will publish more soon. We’ve used their “grown up” versions of City Walks of Provence and of London and found them really well done.
You can purchase the kids serie on the E-shop of Black Wagon, a wonderfully stocked kids shop based in Portland, Oregon (USA).
Ps: If you get the NY one, make sure it’s the latest edition or double check your sources because things change fast in the Big Apple! Example: Tavern on the Green, which you would have found when heading west across Sheep Meadow, well…that glitzzy restaurant in the park went bust last year. I’ll try to post a detailed BozAround in NY soon as I have received a few requests. Stay tuned…
