What do Lonely Planet and Kids have in common? Hint: there's so much more than the Lonely Planet Travel with Children book. And while they say the books are recommended for children ages 3-5, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say they got that wrong! I’m thinking ages 3 – 9 at least. Take a peek here to learn more.

You can find anywhere else what this guide says. Nothing special, nothing that useful for people traveling with babies. It looks more like an advertising book.

If you're a new to traveling with kids, this book provides a good overview. If you've made several trips before, you really don't need this book.

My own personal experience has been flying with kids from NY to Hawaii (10+ hours each way) and from NY to Hong Kong (15+ hours each way). I was hoping for additional tips to make things smoother in flight but there wasn't anything earth shattering here.

The book is broken down into a few key sections:
- Trip Preparation (52 pages, 8 of which is dedicated to air travel specifically)
- On the Road (20 pages on routines while traveling)
- Types of Holidays (21 page overview on camping, resorts, tours, etc)
- Destinations (155 pages on different cities to visit around the world with about 1/2 page dedicated to each city)
- Travel Games (4 pages)

So it's not a "complete resource" as the full book title claims. More than 1/2 of the book is a travel guide of various cities. And each city is only given 1/2 page of coverage. I would suggest buying a few travel books focusing on the cities that you are considering instead. (There are many travel destination books with a focus on kids. And most travel books have at least a small section for kids). I feel this book could have been a lot better if it used the ;ast half of the book for more travel tips rather than an overview of cities around the world.

GOOD POINTS
===========
+ Good overview of air travel with kids (if you've never done it before). Also consider the CARES, Child Aviation Restraint System harness in place of lugging a car seat. You can buy this harness for kids 2+ and it's FAA approved for use in flight. But this wasn't mentioned in the book.
+ Good tips on trip preparation like immunizations, medical kits, etc.

BAD POINTS
==========
- This book is more of a destination guide and each destination is only covered with 1/2 page of information on average.
- Not really needed if you've traveled with kids (successfully) before

SUMMARY
========
I love Lonely Planet guides and this was not the among the best. It's good for an overview for the inexperienced. It is not the "complete resource" that it claims to be.

When I travel, I usually swear by travel guides. Thanks to the insider information provided by some of them, I've seen truly extraordinary sights in places such as Hawaii and Paris that I would otherwise not have known existed. My general rule of thumb when preparing for a trip is to get myself a good guidebook.

Naturally, I was excited about this one. My husband and I are planning a trip to Europe next summer and we will be taking along a six-year-old and a one-year-old. We have some ideas of things we can do that will be fun for the kids but I was looking for some hidden gems that wouldn't be known to the casual traveler, the kinds of tips that only insiders would know about and that would help us to make this a wonderful trip for the kids.

I eagerly turned to the section on Europe only to find it extremely slim. Apparently, countries like Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland--amongst others--are a total waste of time if you have kids as they are not even covered in the book. Even the countries that are covered--such as France and Italy--consist of little more than some very general information. Thanks to the guidebook, I now know that taking the kids for a gelato in Italy should prove an enjoyable experience for them. I'm sure I would never have thought of this myself. Really, the only thing worthwhile are the hotels named in various regions as that does give me something of an idea of good places to stay with kids. I did also find the bits of information on how people of other cultures respond to kids to be somewhat informative. Still, there is no real insightful information here and I'd venture to say that any parent would deduce that taking their kids to Euro Disney would likely go over well with said children.

The only other part of the book that I found at all useful was the section on travel games. There were some good ideas in there as to games to keep the kids occupied not only while in the car but also while standing in line waiting to enter tourist attractions. I will definitely test some of these suggestions when we are on our trip.

Other than that, there is really nothing to recommend this guide. I'd definitely advise spending your hard-earned dollars on a Frommer's or Fodor's guide. They may not specifically be tailored toward family travel but they offer plenty of insider information that will allow any parent to make a more informed decision about what to see and what to pass up while traveling with the little ones. Not so of this guidebook.
