2.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly good enough. May 15 2012
By Paris6 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having someone from Earth edit and organize this self-indulgent book would have tripled the value.

First of all, it should be organized by arrondissement (neighborhood), because that's the reality of Paris. No sane family is going to bounce from the Bastille to the Bois du Boulogne on the same day. Instead the book is organized alphabetically, which is not helpful, and in fact problematic because the formal French names are not necessarily how things are identified. For example the "Centre National d'Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou" is referred to by Parisians as the "Beaubourg" - if you ask by the real name, they will probably stare at you blankly. It should be "Ok, today we're in the 6th, what else is around here?"

Yes there is some value - citing food resources at each site is a great idea, and I didn't know there was a "trampoline park" in the Tuileries - and you can get a kid-friendly brochure at Sainte-Chapelle - but it is generally so overwritten and unedited (only the strangest kid will want to see "Proust's bedroom"). Unless you have unlimited time and the patience to sort through the 6 point type (and if they had edited it the type could have been bigger) don't waste your money. There are not even little maps showing the metro and cross streets at each site.

Supposedly Fodor's are expert in travel books, and supposedly the writers live in Paris, so shame on them. I think Fodor's are just trading on their brand, and eroding it rapidly.

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful Jan. 4 2012
By yidmama - Published on Amazon.com
We bought this book to help us planning the three week long trip to Paris with three young kids. It worked out amazingly well. It is small enough to carry around, it has all necessary phone numbers and addresses, and, best of all, all the great advice on parks, kids-friendly museums, and combination of things to do in Paris. It also talks about things free in Paris - something that regular travel guides rarely mention. Highly, highly recommended.

I was looking for guidance as we plan a vacation in Paris with our 11 year old grandson. This book is well organized, inclusive and informative. It is just what I was looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and a good travel size June 23 2012
By Itchee Feet - Published on Amazon.com
This is a lovely book, and small too, so easy to shove in a bag. Great tips, information and illustrations make it perfect for any family travelling to Paris. It's one of my first choices to take on a family vacation to Paris.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not for kids to read Oct. 6 2013
By la vieja - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for a book I could give to my 12 y.o. granddaughter to read and select things she would want to do. This is not the book for that. The illustrations make you think its for little kids, but the text is for the parent. Which is fine, if that's what you want. I haven't found what I'm looking for though.
