Armchair Travel as Self-Care
By the LJ and SLJ editors
Those of us who like to travel weren't able to venture too far this summer due to the ongoing pandemic. However, the tourism industry has been working hard over the last few months to create appealing virtual experiences for travelers to explore from home. We highlight eye-catching locations from around the world. 
With many parts of the United States experiencing extreme weather, we also feature books on climate change and climate activism, which will draw in teen and adult readers. We also share advice for aspiring activists interested in the voting process and sparking change.
