A LIT­TLE FLIGHT READ­ING

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel & Indulgence - SUSANKUROSAWA

Mar­garet Hynes Lonely Planet, $19.99 DESIGNED­for ju­nior jet­set­ters eight years and above, the lat­est ti­tles in the Not-for-Par­ents range in­clude ‘‘ev­ery­thing you ever wanted to know’’ guides to Africa, Europe, South Amer­ica and Asia (pic­tured). It’s all to do with mak­ing ex­otic cul­tures more ac­ces­si­ble, from cool kite-fly­ing fes­ti­vals to food odd­i­ties. The books aren’t re­ally ed­u­ca­tional aids but they should in­spire kids to find out more and to air new-found knowl­edge at their par­ents (of the ilk of ‘‘toi­let pa­per was in­vented in China, you know’’).
