Our family discovered that a D-Day tour in Normandy can be educational and interesting even for younger elementary school children. Seeing the sites for themselves will have a far greater impact than reading a history lesson from any textbook.
The centrally-located Jardin des Tuileries is one of Paris’ most visited gardens and one of the most kid-friendly spots in the city. Our family enjoyed exploring the gardens as we walked from the Louvre to the Champs-Élysée.
Plans for our upcoming family trip to Paris.
I loved every page of The Sweet Life in Paris. David Lebovitz’ account of what it’s really like to live in Paris had me laughing out loud and the recipes at the end of each chapter are a delicious bonus. The book left me hoping that there is a sequel in the works to provide a little more of the Parisian sweet life.
