The world seems so much smaller these days than when I was a child. The internet and social media has opened up our lives to influences from all over the world. It still amazes me that we can have a video call with my niece in New Zealand that’s as clear as if she was still living in the next county from us. Whilst we may not have the budget to be worldwide travellers right now, I’m eager to find other ways to show my son what an amazing world we live in. We recently received The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid which is published through Workman Publishing and it’s a gem.
The book provides young adventurers with a list of items that they might want to pack for their adventure including and altimeter, geiger counter and solar charger. Exploring 100 different mysterious locations around the world, The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid is written by Dylan Thuras and Rosemary Mosco and is beautifully illustrated by Joy Ang. It’s a 110 page large hardback book aimed at children aged 9 years and over.
As children travel the world through this book they learn about volcanoes in Iceland and blue whale migrations, as well as the wild waterfalls of Zambia before moving on to Antarctica to learn about the creatures that live below Taylor Glacier and the lava lakes that can be found beyond Mount Erebus.
The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid is full of interesting facts about places we’ve not heard of before. Did you know that there’s an abandoned water park in Vietnam that adventurers flock to visit as it decays?
As one of my niece’s is now living in New Zealand we are always interested to learn more about the country she now calls home.
The Waitomo Glowworm Caves sound fascinating.
Although I’m not sure either of us would be as keen to visit Snake island in Brazil to see the Golden Lancehead snakes. They don’t sound very welcoming with their flesh dissolving venom.
We’d definitely prefer a bit of penguin spotting in South Africa! The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid is a fascinating book and one that’s we’re really enjoying.
