Author Laura Schaefer Releases Series of Educational Kids’ Travel Books

Laura Schaefer, author of The Teashop Girls (Simon & Schuster 2009) and The Secret
Ingredient (Simon & Schuster 2011) has a new series of education travel guidebooks
for kids called Planet Explorers. Her first title, Planet Explorers Walt Disney World,
is a guidebook to WDW for readers aged 8-12. With fun facts, history, tips and active
hyperlinks, the ebook is designed to be read on smart phones, Kindles, Nooks, or iPads. It
is on sale now at

“I wanted to give kids an easy way to become more knowledgeable about the world
around them,” explains Schaefer. “The Planet Explorers guides live right on a phone,
which most ‘tweens would have with them during a family vacation or field trip

More exciting, explains Schaefer, is the fact that e-book technology allows readers to
jump from information about the Tom Sawyer’s Island attraction to a website about Mark
Twain. “The e-book format is perfect for young readers,” she says. “A kid can quickly
check out the height requirement for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and then read a
little bit about classic Twilight Zone episodes while they wait in line. It’s all there, linked
and ready to go. Writing Planet Explorers guides is a blast.”

Planet Explorers Walt Disney World is one title in a series of educational travel
guidebooks for kids. Planet Explorers Chicago, Planet Explorers New York City, Planet
Explorers Philadelphia and Planet Explorers Disneyland are also available at this
time. “I loved traveling as a kid,” says Schaefer. “I want to empower my readers to learn
things outside of the classroom.”
