Leap & Hop is a series of travel books for children aged 8 and older written by Isabelle Demenge and illustrated by Emilie Sarnel. The current destination offered in the Leap & Hop collection are: Cambodia, Sri Lanka, India (Rajasthan) and Hong Kong. The idea of the series is to turn a “grown-up” trip into a fun adventure for children. These interactive books aim at getting children to discover new places and learn about other cultures through interesting information as well as games and activities. For parents, the books provide an ideal way to stick to a grown-up itinerary with a focus on cultural sites, and to create an unforgettable travel experience for their children. As kids play along by drawing, writing, and collecting items of interest throughout the journey, they’ll find themselves creating a very personal souvenir as the book is transformed into a travel scrapbook for them to keep.

In addition to general information like history, currency, religious beliefs, food, architecture and Feng Shui, Leap & Hop Hong Kong will take the children to the Big Buddha and various temples, as well as neighbourhoods scattered across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. The kids will be engaged as they explore the Peak, Central, Mid-Levels, Sham Shui Po, and Mong Kok and other interesting areas with fun and educational challenges that vary from place to place, such as scavenger hunts, “I Spy” games, puzzles, and word searches.

The next Leap & Hop destination guides will take you to Bali, Thailand, Beijing and Myanmar.

About the author
Isabelle Demenge is a native of Paris who moved to New York City to start a family. She has lived many lives: corporate finance lawyer, mother of three boys, amateur photographer, world traveler and writer. Facing the difficulties of traveling with children in Cambodia, she decided to write for her kids the book that she couldn’t find… Having passed her kids’ crash-test, she continued developing a series of children’s travel books for other destinations. Her books help families move from “kid–friendly destinations” to places that are culturally richer in a way that all will enjoy with information hand-picked for children and interactive games.
