I've just returned from Paris where we used this little guide - it's packed with ideas and good to use as a browsing tool the evening before you set off into town. Works well combined with City Walks With Kids to cover an age range. If you're choosing between the two, I'd say Around Paris With Kids is good for kids of eight upwards - a more cultural edge with lots of galleries etc. - whereas City Walks is more fun, esp. for younger kids (and in a sense that one is easier to use as it's card-based, so you only have to take the page you want). Around Paris With Kids could be improved with maps and colour (it's b/w), but to be fair it's less a 'where-is-it?' guide than a 'what's-interesting-about-it?'. It's a handy little tool to open up ideas and to spotlight the elements that kids are most likely to be interested in (for example, the entry on Musee D'Orsay talks about the big polar bear sculpture in the hall) so it's great if you want to drag them along on your (adult) agenda and need to do some persuasion! That said, there are plenty of kid-oriented ideas too. A very clear and easy index with cross-referencing really helps - so you can check which entries are about history, or include water, or whatever. Easy to read but feels a bit more directed at the long-suffering adults.

We recently went to Paris with our 2 children aged 4 and 7. We took this book with us (previous edition) and it was invaluable in finding places to go and things to do.We were only there for 5 days,but we could have spent a month or more and still not run out of ideas. Some of the prices turned out to be more than the book said, but presumably they will be more accurate in the new edition.Highly recommended.

We found this book to be extremely useful. We may disagree with the ratings given to different areas, but wherever we went the book guided us well to what the kids would enjoy and where to eat. For example, when we reached the Sacre Coeur in Paris, we didn't think the kids would really enjoy it, however as predicted in the book, they had a lot of fun running up the steps (twice!!). The restaurant advised by the book in the same area was truly unique.
We used the book to plan our trips, but we also, kept it in our backpack wherever we went in case we needed to improvise, or to choose places to eat in different areas.
We found restaurants in Paris to be a bit of a challenge, as many of them are not child friendly. The book was invaluable in this regards.

This book was referenced the most during our trip to Paris. It gave good variety of age appropriate advice and suggestions. It helped gear our family's expecations about what was realistic and fun for a 3 and 5 year old. We were able to spend 3.5 hours in the Louvre having promised the suggested mummy exhibit first and ending with the promised and suggested Mall food court that is underneath all while sandwiching in the Great Hall and Mona Lisa in the middle. David and Goliath artwork in the great hall also helped keep our five year old involved.

HASH(0x92f55498) out of 5 stars Great book for visitors or people who are going to live there 6 Sept. 2008
By Jean-christophe Gourribon - Published on
Format: Paperback
We bought this book for friends who are living now in Paris (and we are French and we know Parish quit well) They have got 3 children and they are thrilled with this book. It gives them plenty ideas to do with the kids. Very easy and good explenation (and it doens't stop with the main attraction!)
So if you are going to Paris or somebody is going to live there this will be a great book!

HASH(0x92f554ec) out of 5 stars A Great Book for Children and Their Parents 12 Sept. 2009
By Tom Triumph - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book calmed me down. When we decided to go to Paris with our 3 and 7 year old boys, we could only think of all of the things we could NOT do. This book let me know how each site would work with kids and what to expect. It also included a number of sites I had not really noticed in our Lonely Planet guide, but which turned out to be great.

My seven year old really got into it. It has a flip-cartoon of the Eiffel Tower, which he flipped over and over again before settling on a page to read. It really excited him.

I strongly recommendation this book if you are going with kids.

Took a 5 and 8 year old to Paris and this book was a great help! Nice, accurate descriptions of activities and sights and helpful information about public transportation to each one. Great small size enables you to take it along in a purse or tote. Got the Washington DC book for our trip there as well.

HASH(0x946e2834) out of 5 stars Greattttttttttttttt and then some. 3 Sept. 2008
By Judy McFalls - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has all the details necessary to make an enjoyable trip with your kids to Paris. Just fabuous. My daughter and I visited Paris and found this guide most helpful. All the good stuff with not all the fluff. There are sections that cover food, playgrounds, and other fun outdoor activities. All in all, I had a wonderful time with my daughter where this guide definately helped with all its ideas. Fudor's is the best, and I hope to see other in the series for trips I may have in the future. So this book is both action and info packed, totally awesome with tons of useful information that I could not remcoment any higher---as in greattttttttttttttttttt.

HASH(0x92f55924) out of 5 stars Not Helpful for Those New to Paris! 29 Jan. 2010
By Traveling Gal - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book based on the other reviews that I read for it here on Amazon. We are planning our first visit to Paris and were in need of a book to help us decide what to do with our children who are 11 and 9 years old. The book is terribly organized and, for someone like us who is new to the city, it doesn't help at all with deciding what would be best to do during our time there.

The headlines at the top of each page are in French so if you are not fluent enough to understand them, you are forced to read through each page to decide if it would be something the family might enjoy. I have found this book to be of little use for my needs (which are to plan our 5 day stay in Paris), but if you are planning a longer visit where exploring neighborhoods and their parks are of interest to you, you might find the book helpful.

The only thing we thought was good about this book was the dancing Eiffel Tower contained within its pages!
