Travel Books for Kids – Rome Edition
Travel Books of Rome, Preparing your kids’
We as always work to prepare our traveling kids’ for big adventures. Rome, Italy is no exception, we talk to our children about or pending adventures weeks in advance.
When these trips are a few weeks away, the kids sense the nervous excitement we have as parents, this inevitability leads to a million questions about what they will be seeing and doing. Instead of reading them a boring Travel Guide or watching TV, I found these Kids’ Travel Books of Rome, Italy very helpful in outlining what they can expect in Rome. They will also make great reading material for the journey there.

This is Rome
Like the other Sasek classics, this is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, remaining true to his vision more than 40 years later. Facts have been updated for the 21st-century, appearing on a “This is . . . Today” page at the back of the book. These charming illustrations, coupled with Sasek’s witty, playful narrative, make for a perfect souvenir that will delight both children and their parents, many of whom will remember the series from their own childhoods. This is Rome, first published in 1960, traces the history of Roman civilization to bring to life the Rome of the 60’s. Sasek navigates Rome’s busy, winding streets to visit such glorious historical landmarks as the statues of Michelangelo, Vatican City, the Pantheon, and the Fontana di Trevi-and to show us the eccentricities of modern Roman life, from its colourful trains, trams, and taxis to its chic espresso bars and pasta houses.
Madeline and the Cats of Rome
Our Kids’ Travel Books of Rome list includes a Madeline adventure.
The Paris skies are gray, so Miss Clavel and the twelve little girls are leaving for brighter weather? spring in Rome. Rome has wonderful sights to see and delicious things to eat, but Madeline also finds an unexpected adventure, involving a thief, a chase, and many, many cats. The first all-new Madeline book in close to fifty years combines a lively story with luminous gouache and watercolor illustrations. Beloved Madeline returns, as brave and irrepressible as ever!
