Lonely Planet Kids has announced that buying their educational books this Christmas will foster a love of travel and the world in young children.

With Christmas just around the corner, Lonely Planet Kids is confident that their new shipment of educational books will be the perfect gift for adventurous kids.

The company is a branch of Lonely Planet, focusing on educating children about the world through books on culture, sociology, geography, nature, history, space and so much more.

Their latest lift-the-flap book, Ancient Wonders: Then & Now introduces kids to some of history’s most famous civilizations in a fun and interactive way.

Lonely Planet Kids said that: “Children will be transported to a Chinese army made of clay, swim through Cleopatra’s sunken underwater palace, experience gladiatorial combat in Rome and much more. Marvel away!”

Recommended for curious kids aged 5-8, this hardcover book is a generous $24.99 AUD this season.

For the young daredevils out there, Lonely Planet Kids has the perfect present — The Daredevil’s Guide to Dangerous Places.

Readers are taken to 35 treacherous, real-life corners of the planet, including an island full of venomous snakes off the coast of Brazil, a volcano erupting as often as every five minutes in Italy and even a mountain with the wind power to literally blow you off it.

With a mix of photos and illustrations, interesting facts and danger stats, the company described this book as “a fun introduction to natural wonders both fascinating and destructive.”

Children can also be introduced to learning a foreign language if they are given First Words Board Books: English, French & Spanish for Christmas.

Each beautifully illustrated phrasebook contains 12 words to use while travelling, from categories like food and transport, to animals and weather.

Other options for curious kids include How Airports Work and Build Your Own Dinosaur Museum.
