If you have followed me for long or you know me personally, you know I am a big book nerd. I love to read, and I especially love to read books that are set in other countries - books where I can be transported to far-off places as I lose myself in their pages. For those of you like me, who enjoy both reading and traveling, this is the article for you.

Books are a huge deal in our house. My personal stash includes more books than I care to admit (i.e. more books than I can possibly read in my lifetime). And we have a great collection of children's books for Emmett. Each year after Christmas, when I take down the Christmas decorations, I also box up the Christmas books to be pulled out again the following year. And each year, I add more Christmas books to Emmett's collection. This list includes some of our favorites, as well as some we are gifting him this year.

It's no secret that I'm a fan of Alice in Wonderland. I have the animated 1951 Disney film practically memorized front to back. I love the live action remakes with Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp. I even love the animated 1988 Burbank Films Australia version of Alice in Wonderland.
If you're like me, you may wonder where you can find Alice in Wonderland-themed statues, restaurants, and shops.

Every other week during the summer my mom would take my little brother and me to the library for story time and to collect the books we would read over the next two weeks. As we got older, we refrained from joining the younger kids for story time, but our bi-weekly ritual continued throughout elementary school and most of junior and high school. We participated in the annual Pizza Hut BOOK IT! challenge, each of us earning our free personal pan pizza each year.
