Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!

This collection of fairy tales, written by Finnish author Tove Jansson, is a staple for the children of Finland. According to Kirsti Kauppi, Finnish Ambassador to the United States, its “philosophic nature is universal and makes the books enjoyable for people of all ages and from all backgrounds.”

In a delightful, curious game of what comes next, Moomintroll travels through the woods to get home with milk for Moominmamma. A simple trip turns into a colorful adventure as Moomintroll meets Mymble, who has lost her sister, Little My. Along the way, they endure the hijinks of all the charming characters of the Moomin world, including the Fillijonks and Hattifatteners. Will Moomintroll ever make it home safe and sound?

While the original English translation of this book—introduced in 1954—is favored by many for its darker overtones, this new edition still captures the essence of Jansson with her colorful and vivid illustrations. Given that Scandinavian literature can be dark and foreboding, this version may even be preferable for those with younger, more sensitive kids.
