There are so many adorable board books about travel and exploration available now. Even the smallest of readers with wanderlust can travel to new places and explore new things just by cracking a board book.
Traveling is one thing that is nearly impossible to do when you have small children—I know, I’ve tried! It’s stressful and exhausting and I usually end up muttering curse words for hours on end.
But reading a book with my toddler is the perfect way to “visit” some places without boarding a plane or spending hours or days in the car.
So without further delay, here are some of my favorite board books about travel and exploration.
