How To Find Babysitting Help When You Travel? (exclusive book preview)

It can be extremely daunting to leave a child with a babysitter we just met in a different country.

Our Favorite Travel Apps for Kids (exclusive book preview)

This list originally came from our post Technology and apps to make traveling w/ children much easier (controversial topic alert!) on time for us while keeping our little one busy, engaged and learning the whole time!

Let us know if you have any apps that you find particularly helpful while traveling with your children.

YouTube Premium: we subscribe to YouTube Premium only when we are traveling so we can download all of our son’s favorite educational shows.

Kindle Fire Kids Edition: ton of great apps and videos that you can download straight to the Kindle. Be aware of the drawback that the downloads only last 48 hours before having to reconnect to the internet.

Chu Chu TV: a subscription-based app where you can access a great library of videos for your kids. Videos are educational with super diverse characters. These videos can be downloaded to any smart device.
