Do you love to travel and share the passion with the little ones in your life? Even if it takes time to get back to your favorite destinations with your family, you can take a virtual trip with the help of a good book. The mother-daughter writer duo Serena Minott and Asha Gore celebrate the diversity of travel with their new children’s book series “The Amazing Adventures of Aya & Pete”, which is available now from Nordstrom.
Each of the three books follows Aya, an adventurous young girl, and her stuffed sloth Pete in a new location from London to Paris to New York City. Follow us as Aya and Pete discover new places, people and of course food. The stories contain maps, facts, and useful information about the different cities, including geography, language, currency, and landmarks. So they are as educational as they are entertaining. Whether you’re reading about the characters exploring New York’s skyscrapers or trying French pastries in Paris, you won’t be disappointed.
Minott says she was inspired to create this series of books after searching for inclusive travel books for her own daughter. “I thought if I was looking for these books and there certainly weren’t any with characters that looked like Asha, there had to be other families in the same position,” she said.
And those books are here in time for the holidays. So if you’ve been looking for the perfect gift for a curious little one in your life, you’ve come to the right place. They are sure to create wanderlust in you and your life children. Read on to buy this beautiful range of books.
