The Atlas Obscura Explorer’s Guide for the World’s Most Adventurous Kid
by Dylan Thuras & Rosemary Mosco ill Joy Ang
The introductory and final pages are an invitation for young readers to be curious and explore wonders waiting to be discovered "starting in your own backyard." Some of the directives are practical. Others are fantastical. For example, the traveler's Packing List includes basic items such as sunscreen and a first aid kit. But look further down the supply checklist and you'll find a Geiger Counter and treats for goats "just in case you run into some adorable hungry goats."
Bonus: Create Your Own Adventure
As Ellie declares, "adventure is out there." Curiosity is the first step.
Visiting local museums, natural parks, and libraries (probably best not to rip out pages of books, Ellie) will feed the heart and soul of adventurers young and old.
