Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ich habe das Buch nicht für mich, sondern für die Kinder meiner Freunde gekauft, war aber vom Durchblättern nicht so recht begeistert von dem Buch. Aufgrund der Werbung hatte ich mir mehr erhofft - mehr in Richtung Marco Polo Reiseführer für Kinder. Mit Insider Tipps für Kinder und auch mal eine Rallye durch die Stadt vorbei an div. Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Gratuitous 7. Januar 2012
Von Chelsea Liddle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The "London: Everything you ever wanted to know" is an interesting book to look through. The first thing I noticed is its comfortable size and how nicely it is to flip through. When I first opened it up I was immediately interested because it has many great pictures, and each page is loaded with text inserts, photos, drawings, posters, diagrams... you name it. The London book touches on some great subjects, ranging from the punk scene to Sherlock Holmes to an inside look at Windsor Castle.

There is a good part of the content that is dark, gruesome, and violent, and this is suppose to be a kids book. For example, there is a spread on Jack the Ripper, The Great Plague, and on public executions (which includes awful drawings). There are drawings depicting torture, and several other things that are questionable. But here's my real issue with the book and why I only gave it two stars despite the gorgeous pictures and layout: My biggest problem is not so much that the book contains violent material, but the flippant and callous way violence, wickedness and human tragedy are presented. The authors present suffering as something that is almost funny, almost like a "haha, too bad for them!" kind of attitude. In my opinion, history should be presented with some level of basic human compassion and not merely as gratuitous entertainment where we smirk carelessly at misfortune, minimize evil and then without a care in the world toss the book aside.

kids guidebook has ADD 31. Januar 2012
Von Tracie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This book is a collection of *very brief* facts about London. It's arranged in a rather haphazard manner. I think it was designed to capture the attention of children who are used to screen images changing every few seconds. There's jumbles of pictures, and it is very cartoony.

I thought it might pique my son's interest in our upcoming trip to London. He's 11 and finished the book in about 15 minutes (as did I). He said the book was "ok" and that it made him want to visit the Tower of London.

I really wish it had more flow, and that it read in a less chaotic manner. for example one two-page spread discusses immigrants from the Caribbean. The next two page spread discusses Sherlock Holmes (without making it clear that they've transitioned from fact to fiction). The next spread goes back to "fact" with little bits about Trafalgar Square (and real, non-fictional people). The next two pages are about the plague. And then we are back to two pages about immigrants. It's confusing and haphazard.

What fun!! 16. Januar 2012
Von nitsa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The title suggests that it's "Not for Parents" Don't let that fool you. I had just as much fun reading it as did my children. The visuals and descriptions throughout the book made it an informative and fun read. The chapters consist of two pages each, taking various historical land marks and subjects such as the royal family and history of London to a whole new level.

It even includes a chapter on Harry Potter and brings the tourist into the world where the movie was filmed with pictures , illustrations and fun trivia.

Some of the table contents are as follows:
Old Father Thames(history of the river)
Belly Up! (the many foods of London which includes a recipe of jellied eel)
Pass the Army and Navy (the people of Cockney along with sayings and their meanings)
I Spy the London Eye (how the famous wheel works and how it was built)
One Does So Enjoy Being Royal ( history of the royal family with tid bits of famous royals)
It's About Time (all about Big Ben)
Mummies and Mega Treasures (London's museums)

There area total of 94 pages. I want to say it is a quick read but I found myself reading it over and over again I enjoyed it so much. This is a terrific book for those traveling with children and giving them a glimpse of the culture and history of the city. It also is a great book for the first time traveler to give them a quick guide to London.

Lonely Planet has many terrific books for people of all ages. This is a book that will not be left on the shelf but one that you can pick up and read all over again.

Great way to whet your child's appetite for travel 22. Oktober 2011
Von Julia Flyte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Targeted at children, this new series from the Lonely Planet francise introduces some of the world's great cities. The focus is on "stuff that's cool to know" and the books are a terrific introduction to each city. My boys are aged 7 and 11 and they both have really enjoyed these books.

"London: Everything you ever wanted to know" covers a wide range of topics: the history and geography of the city, key tourist attractions, the Royal Family, public transport, literary and historical heroes and Harry Potter movie locations. The book is in full colour with many photographs and illustrations and includes a comprehensive index.

While there's plenty of educational text, it's written and presented in an upbeat and quirky way. Some of the many cool facts that my kids enjoyed reading about are who and where people are buried (and haunt) Westminster Abbey, the Great Fire of London, the London Bridge that was sold to the US, torture and executions in the Tower of London, cockney rhyming slang, a recipe for jellied eels (ugh) and the real life Monopoly destinations.

Whether you're preparing for a trip or just interested in learning more about the world, this is a fantastic addition to a child's library. The entire series is terrific, but this one and the Paris guide are especially good. The London edition seems to have the most humor, which my children enjoyed.

Fun for kids -- and grownups! 17. Mai 2012
Von Molly P. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
"Not-For-Parents - London: Everything You Ever Wanted To know" is a nearly-100-page book chock full of pieces of information, photos, illustrations, bits of zany trivia, even some games. Each 2-page spread presents a different aspect of the city -- from historical, to cultural, to just plain weird. You'll find out about the Royal Family, Shakespeare, the Tube, Guy Fawkes, London fashion, the Great Fire, Trafalgar Square, London Bridge, British sports and music, and lots more!

I was impressed by the variety of topics presented in the book. Someone could read this cover-to-cover or just peruse the pages that interest them. With all its pictures and colorful fonts and drawings, each page is bound to keep the brain activated. Meanwhile, all the little facts and pieces of trivia are great. Many kids will love reading them and impressing their parents with their new-found knowledge.

I've read the "New York" book in this series as well, but I think the "London" one is for more mature readers (10 and up, as opposed to maybe 8 and up for New York). "London" contains quite a few pages with grizzly historic details and gross-out illustrations. Two pages are about decapitation, two about torture & imprisonment in the Tower of London, two about Jack the Ripper, and two about the Great Plague. So while some kids might find this absolutely fascinating, others might be a little disturbed. (But hey, it's history, right?)

Is this book JUST for kids? No way! While I did lend it to my 11-year-old cousin (she sat and read it for several hours) I, as an adult, felt like it was a fun and interesting read for me as well. The speech bubbles on some of the comics are a bit corny, but hey. I think it's great that they're making books about famous cities for kids. I'm planning to purchase the ones for Paris and Rome, too. Who knows if I'll ever travel to those places? But, with these books, learning about them sure is fun!
