Or, why not? It's easy to understand why parents would hesitate to travel, particularly with young children. We've trav- eled to 21 different countries after living abroad for seven years. Most of those trips were with a baby, a toddler or both! Here are some of the things we learned along the way.

Storytelling is a valuable learning process and children carry those memories in a different way.
