Here's my biggest complaint about this book from Lonely Planet. Look at that book cover. And, the spine looks the same. Why would you call that City Trails - Paris, instead of Paris - City Trails? It's just wrong.
Maybe I've been hanging around Kaye Wilkinson Barley too much. And, Kaye is one of the four women I'm going to Paris with in the fall. She wrote about it on her blog recently, and mentioned a number of books on her Paris booklist. Check out that post on Meanderings and Muses. http://bit.ly/2hSHtr7
But, she hasn't read City Trails - Paris. I picked it up at the library, and it's filled with interesting places to visit. It's organized for kids (perfect for someone who has never been to Paris), and I found several places I'd love to go. I want to ride the Dodo Menage. The carousel is in the Garden des Plantes, and it features extinct or endangered animals. Kaye and I are both crazy about carousels.
I want to at least see the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. Each of the four towers is designed to look like an open book.
You can have breakfast with the giraffes at the Paris Zoological Park, Parc Zoologique de Paris! I'd love to do that.
City Trails - Paris may be designed for kids, but I think it points out more fun places to visit than many tour guides. I'm looking for the fun and unusual while we're in Paris. Well, besides hot chocolate and croissants.
