Format: Paperback
An enjoyable book that I could not put down. Sarah Tucker made me see through her eyes the beauty (at times)and the realization of traveling with a child. Every parent with a young child should read "Have Baby, Will Travel" to find out the countries that cater to an infant/ toddler's needs. I happened to be traveling while reading this book and was so aware of England's lack of compassion for mother and young child. (Train station and Underground) On holiday abroad, mother's with infants were visible at the market, stations and restaurants. Sarah Tucker's light approach was charming and an easy read. A mother's honest approach, dealing with life's changes after having a baby. Eagerly waiting a book on traveling with pre-teens, but will have to wait a few years before the making!

This is a charming collection of anecdotes which the author has loosely based round the theme of travelling with her baby - entirely appropriate given that the thrust of the book is not so much "Baby first" but rather "Travel first (and oh look it appears as if I've got a baby along too)" - which is a refreshing change for those of us who are weary of perfect mums whose children always come first! This book was not intended as a reference book (as it clearly states) but manages to dispense intelligent and amusing comments along with a sense of how much fun the author had on her travels - a fun which, as she said, was in most places enhanced by having Tom along. Read it if you've ever thought about escaping but feel tethered by motherhood. Sarah Tucker will have you packing your front carrier in no time!

This is a must-read for any parent (not just Mums) who will soon be faced with the trauma of travelling with a child. It is very anecdotal which makes it a good read. There are facts and figures at the back but if that is all you want then, there are others that cover this already. But if you want an entertaining read then it is irresistable. Tucker's style is light and funny. She makes fun of herself throughout leaving baby Tom to be the star of the book. That said, if you don't like her style then you will hate the book, but I think such reactions will be rare. I don't read many books, but once I had got past the conception I could not put it down! In particular I was amazed at the shoddy treatment given to Sarah by people in hotels and restaurants in the UK compared to other parts of the world. Every hotelier, airline and rail chief should be foreced to read this book as part of their training! I have never read any books by Tucker before but I hope more will be on the way. Maybe "Trials and Tribulations of a Travel Journalist"!

OK, so this is no 'Fodor's Guide to Baby Changing Rooms', but why should we expect women to deal only with the feeding and winding!
Sarah Tucker manages to give us a sense of how different the world can seem once one has another vulnerable little one to guide through the maze of travel. It's interesting to note that her views of most nationalities's attitudes to youngsters matched my own experience (and mosty, my stereotypes)
Tucker gave me fun, insight and reflection but don't buy it if you want to know how to change a nappy (or daiper) on the Toronto tramcar! This is no guidebook, it is a fun travel book from a thoroughly modern lady.

A light hearted look at some of the joys and problems of travelling with a tiny tot. An easy going read with a good measure of humour, healthy cynicism and at the end a useful reference section for anybody mad enough to try their luck at the same game. I smiled ruefully as I came across what could have been notes of some of my own experiences with my own son. Hopefully this is only the first instalment; the easy travelling days when the little one can't walk (run, sprint .... disappear !), I look forward to the next book to see how Sarah gets on around the worlds airports and hotels with a toddler of 2 or 3 !
