My daughter LOVES maps and adventures. When we go to a park for hiking, she loves to hold the map and tell me which way to go. I think she would LOVE the Little Passports program! Especially because it also involves her getting things in the mail. Every day she wants to help me check the mail to see if there is something for her.
Here she is with her map on an adventure we took last summer. She still has this map in her playroom and she gets it out and lines up all her babies for an adventure. It’s really adorable! Then she marches around the house and tells me about all the places she is going. This is usually an activity she does while I am cooking, so I see her and hear about it every time she comes through the kitchen.
We do travel a lot, she has been to more places in her 4 years than I did in my first 21 years! She loves to go places that are close by and places that take a 2 day drive. She’s a pretty good traveler, and just goes with the flow of things. After vacations, of course, we have a few days of adjusting back to “normal” life, especially if there is other family there that she loves to visit with.

The USA Edition of Little Passports is recommended for children ages 7-12, but I think my daughter would like this one better. She would love to see Sam and Sofia visiting places she has been already. Plus, the name Sofia is special to her because her friend named Sofia moved away and she is always talking about how Sofia now lives in Kentucky and sometimes we visit her.
If you haven’t heard of Little Passports, it’s a monthly subscription service that you can order for your child/children. Once a month, you get a package in the mail full of adventures in a new place! There is also online content that you get access to with each package you receive.
This would be a great way to keep t he kids learning over the summer- and I don’t think they will realize how much they are learning on their adventures! And when they go back to school in the fall, they will have a lot of stories to tell their friends!
I think we will start with the USA Edition, and then once we complete that one, we can move onto the World Edition. My daughter currently has a big map of the United States on the wall that we colored and she loves it. She drew pictures of people she knows and we taped them to where they live. I am hoping to give her a sense of geography so she remembers it better than I have! And I am learning right along with her 🙂 It has been a really long time since I was in grade school.
Which edition will you start with?
