Lonely Planet Kids New Release Children's Activity Books Illustrated by James Gulliver Hancock - Review and WIN!


Quality Lonely Planet Kids books are hands down some of the best reads out there for children. Our own collection has kept our youngest children both happy and busy during the Corona virus lock down. LPK books have also proven a great resource for online learning projects during the home-schooling phase.

Lonely Planet Kids books are educational, informative, fun to read and view.


With the arrival of June, Lonely Planet Kids have released new book titles for kids which will not disappoint. Check them out here and make sure you enter our giveaway to win a set of the books featured in this post for your child to enjoy. We have 5 book packs to giveaway worth $26 each.

Two new titles by Lonely Planet Kids are available in good book stores and on the Lonely Planet Kids website right now. These books include How Airports Work and How Cities Work. Both books are fun-packed activity books. There is also a set of 3 new board books for very young readers titled Airport, Cities and Trains, designed for kids aged 0-2. (These younger kids' books are not featured in this review or giveaway but you can view them via the links above.)

Get ready to be blown away by the modern, funky images in these newest titles by the talented Sydney-based illustrator, James Gulliver Hancock.

  10. My nieces travel to Colombia to visit their grandmother and have since they were tiny. I don't think they are aware of all the work that goes into the airports - especially the baggage - and I think these books would give them a better understanding of how detailed flying is.
