Education Through Travel shows how the sharing of travel experiences by children and adults, with their different perspectives, knowledge, and skills, can be enriching for all age groups involved.  Ainsworth's suggestions include the use of an ordinary road map for learning about landforms, population centers, political divisions, and points of interest; using photography thematically, for better organizing and remembering; and the creation of time lines –graphic displays of facts in time that help youngsters understand the historical progression of events.

This book is a sourcebook for parents and educators who would like to see children receive maximum benefit from their travel experience, and it does help one to capitalize on the natural curiosity and wonder stimulated by most journeys, to lead raw sensations into appropriate intellectual contexts that will provide lasting satisfaction and utility for young and old.
