The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” Saint Augustine

After you explored this post, I think you’ll agree that taking children to the location of some best loved children’s author and sharing their books  does inspire children to love reading. With so many new interactive e-books, apps based on favorite stories, and online games with beloved characters, it’s easy to forget about just plain books. But children’s novels and picture books can become real-world adventures when you take young readers to children’s literature-centered destinations throughout New England.

Kids need adventure. Take them to visit Paddington Bear’s hometown.

What are the benefits for children from reading literature?

Many educators agree that reading literature gives children these valuable life skills:

Literature provides pleasure to listeners and readers. It is a relaxing escape from daily problems, and it fills leisure moments.

Literature builds experience. Children expand their horizons through vicarious experiences

Literature provides a language model for those who hear and read it. Good literature exposes children to correct sentence patterns, standard story structures, and varied word usage

This family storybook vacation on the Grimms Fairy Tale Road started in  Hanau , the place where Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm were born. The journey continued on to Steinau der Strasse and Kassel.

Now let’s journey on to visit the remaining fascinating cities on this magical trip.




Continuing on the enchanted road to Gottingen is where the Brothers Grimm lived after they moved away from Kassel. While living here, the Grimm brothers held professorships at the city’s famous university, which was founded in 1734.
