Planning a Trip to Great Britain?? You NEED to See This!

I must admit Great Britain is on the top of my "GOTTA GET THERE!" list!

This past weekend my husband and I went on a date together, after dinner we love to meander through the local book store. I always wind up in the travel section (- surprise!)

I found the greatest travel guide there for homeschooling families that love literature!

Once Upon A Time in Great Britain: A Travel Guide to the Sites and Settings of Your Favorite Children's Stories

So many of our classic children's stories take their roots from Great Britain!
In this guide you will find these classic stories and more!

Peter Pan
The Tale of Peter Rabbit (and other Beatrix Potter's stories)
The Secret Garden
The Chronicles of Narnia
Alice's Adventures In Wonderland
Dr. Doolittle
Winnie the Pooh
Mary Poppins
Watership Down
Paddington Bear
101 Dalmatians
The Railway Children

There is a brief history on the story, the author, places to see in G.B. and activities for children and teens while there.

This book is an invaluable resource for homeschoolers traveling to G.B. via reality or armchair! You'll love it!
