About Adventures Around the Globe

Title: Adventures Around the Globe
Publication Date: September, 2015 

Publisher: Lonely Planet Kids 

Pages: 60 + 12 pages of stickers 

Recommended Ages: 4+

My Review

Adventures Around The Globe is one of several fun activity books in the “Adventures In…” series.

This is a heavy book with large glossy pages. There’s maps, spot the difference games, and pages to color.

There’s also a lot of fun facts about the places you visit in the book. Learn about the native wildlife, about the oceans, about mountains and cities and people.


Solve the maze, find the animals, and then head to the back of the book. There are pages and pages of stickers. You find the corresponding page and start sticking away, creating your own tapestry of adventure.

Three generations of my family, my mother, myself, and my son, had some fun with the Spot The Difference games. We took turns trying to find all of them and whoever did it in the least amount of time won.

I really wanted to get to the stickers and create some fun adventures. But, I have plans to give this book as a gift and let a special someone have all the fun.

The pages are thick and shiny and the colors so vivid the images leap out at you. And when I opened the book, it smelled so good. I love the smell of books.

Even after you do all of the activities, you’ll keep coming back to this wonderful book. There’s always something you missed, some fun fact or something hidden in a picture.

I recommend this to all ages. For the kids, they’ll spend hours immersed in these activities, and for the adults, hey, we are all kids inside.
