If traveling to the British Isles (England, Scotland, Ireland), Bali, or Japan, a must have is The Little Travelers DVD. These DVDs were created by a mom and her two young daughters as they explored the local culture of these countries. Even if you aren’t traveling to one of these locations, I think the videos are superb for teaching young children about adapting to another culture and accepting other traditions- even if not familiar with them.
Honest, adorable, and incredibly good quality – you will find yourself sitting next to your child and watching in a trance as these amazing little travelers explore life in another country. What is it like in a grocery store in Japan? Do they use similar wash machines? Do little kids in Bali or Japan ride bikes with training wheels also?
These videos will keep you smiling and at times even laughing as the girls are honest about their impressions and reactions, as well as enthusiastic in their adventures and friendships. The video appears professionally done in quality, but are so real that you are assured there is no acting involved!
A valuable educational tool for any person who has yet to travel to a foreign country, I think The Little Travelers DVDs are a fabulous tool for parents to prepare children for life away from home. I’ll even go so far as to say that these DVDs are a great tool for any traveler of any age. Because really – the true essence of travel is not to see the castles or museums, but instead to understand another way to live life- daily life. Go ahead – take a moment to fly a kite in the rice field with the children of Bali. You will be mesmerized and thankful.
The narration is done by the two girls, adding a unique value to the video as they share the memories of daily life from their own perspective. Wonderful native music accompanies the girls in the video as they journey into everyday life at the market, play areas, restaurants, temples and more.
I am sure this was created for children – but is recommended by Jet with Kids for the whole family!
