"Hey kids: Geography can be fun! At least when it involves an illustrated guide to 100 magical destinations, including the Waitomo Glowworm Caves of New Zealand and South Africa’s Boulders Penguin Colony.
Just don’t blame us if next year the little ones ask for a round-trip ticket to Ethiopia’s Lava Lakes."
— The Washington Post
