ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Laura Schaefer explains the concept behind the Planet Explorers Travel Guides for Kids series: "I wanted to give young readers an easy way to become vacation experts. The whole philosophy behind the series is empowering kids and engagement through photos, fun facts, and web links. Writing Planet Explorers guidebooks is wonderful. I love history, and I've been a middle school curriculum writer for over a decade, so my guidebooks definitely have a 'social studies' feel to them. "Planet Explorers guidebooks cut out all the stuff children would find boring if they looked through a regular travel guide and focus on attractions and fun facts. The guides have a lot of pictures and even include a quiz at the end. Parents have told me they're excited about the easy way the guidebooks incorporate learning about geography, history, art and science into real-life experiences. "I loved traveling as a kid. I want to empower my readers to be part of planning vacations with their parents. That way, the trip is more fun and fulfilling for the whole family."
